Is there a Nursing Job that does not involve needles and blood?

I am thinking of getting into nursing but I feel very queasy when I see needles and blood. Is there any nursing job that I can get into that doesn't require me to do those things?

Although you can't avoid that all together because people in medical fields work with illness and injury, I've always though medical imagining careers could be pretty cool, like, radiology, CT techs, MRI techs, ultra sound techs...etc.

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for but you could always try home health care. My mom worked in home health care for a long time and she never had to work with needles or blood. Of course, I'm sure it depends on the patient and their personal needs but it would be worth looking into.
