What kind of jobs can I get with a bachelor's degree in Biology?

I used to want to be a nurse, but then I realized that that is more taking care of people, and not really looking at the science part of it. I kinda want to do something with medical research, and I'm really good with genetics particularly. Im just kinda worried about the job outlook aspect of it, like how hard it will be to find a job and that kind of stuff.

You should definitely plan to attend grad school, whether its med school or something else. If its just a Biology major with no specializations, then you can't really do much with it. You should either A) go to grad school or B) specialize within your current major if possible (for example, Biotechnology).
