Default getting a job during interview season

Hi I currently have a full time job, that I hate (horrible boss, extremely rude, stingy, etc...) I stayed with them since they are so flexible/lenient and I can take off whenever I want, but I just really can't stand them anymore. I'm looking for any other job, but am worried if I sign up for another full time job they won't be flexible for taking off days for interviews/etc... I would prefer to not work and just do interview season/study for step 3 to take in dec/jan. What do you guys think? Stick it out, find another job, or stop working and just study? I watch an elderly lady in addition to my full time job so I would not be completely broke and live with family to offset expenses.

Thanks for any input

Continue if the job is remotely related to medicine. Better than sitting at home.
