need help on deciding from nursing/law!

Help! Im a junior year in college and im majoring in biochemistry. Before, my major was pre nursing and I have a lot of pre reqs for the program. Then I thought of medical school but I figured it took way too long plus I dont have that kind of money. Then I wanted to be a patent lawyer because im knowledgable in science. But im still worried about money issues, nursing in manhattan makes around 70K and I was thinking I could work on my second degree in biochemistry while in nursing school and being a nurse then I can apply to law school. Has anyone youve known ever done this?
What is the starting income for a patent lawyer who just graduated law school?  
I just wanted to do nursing because its liek a safety net and I know I'll make at least 70K being a nurse.

I can't say whether you'd be happier in one career or the other, as I am only about to enter the realm of IP law, but I would advise you not to enter XX career b/c it could be a safety net or because it might put a dent in your finances early on. Do the research, decide what you want to do, and GO FOR IT!
 
Good luck.

my 2 cents for what its worth:
 
there is much more demand for a nurse than there is for a biochem patent attorney.  nurses are sought after everywhere, and i know of many young patent attorneys who dont have (patent) jobs [i am one of them].  for what its worth.
