New job, old job, school, and ageing? Or just a failure?

So I've posted about having an Information Science and Technology degree (2010) and never having an opportunity to get a jump start, I've said I want to become an archivist but I feel 42 is too late with no experience/MLIS and I want to start over in NYC....I'm pretty sure my current job is being downsized although my employer insists not. Mind you I am one of their longest employees (11 years). As a surg tech they want to utilize MA's for my some aspects of my position, the big guys are always showing up and changing the rules as to how many people can justifiably be working compared to patient ratio and on and on. I haven't felt job secure in weeks and again my boss reassures me that my job is safe...I just don't feel it. So now I contacted the employer I worked 11 years ago, they are hiring nights, not sure what the pay is yet. It is an ob tech job and I enjoyed the people etc...I know I was fed up at the time I left BUT I feel the need to get out of my current situation now while I can, is that irrational? I may be taking a step back but am thinking of returning to school for nursing which may be a more marketable option for me...I'm 42 and would still like to move to NYC. I'm so confused right now and kind of depressed, any advice?
