Great question. And, great that you already certified as a nursing assistant. You could apply to work in settings such as hospitals, clinics/provider-doctors offices, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, homecare (work at home taking care of patients of all ages), or sign-up with a healthcare agency/staffing agency/travel agency (assigned to different locations in your area to work as a nursing assistant).

Since you are in school and need a flexible schedule there are options such as working part-time or per-diem/flex. A healthcare employer may provide you set days that work with your school schedule. Additionally, in a per-diem/flex position you can let the healthcare employer know which days and times you are available. For example, perhaps you only work weekends due to your school schedule. You would work 6 hours on Sat and Sun then still have time during the week for classes and studying and time during the week to study.

I also noticed you are in New York, New York. There are many settings that I mentioned that are in your area.

All the best in your job hunt and in school. Enjoy your studies. Remember to balance school, studies, and work to give you enough energy and time to rest.

Joe’s Answer

My wife is a nurse. My suggestion would be to apply in areas of healthcare you find most interesting. For example, my wife is in pediatrics, but she has friends that find more fulfillment in OB/Gyn, or ICU. There will always be a need for CNA's so find an area that you believe will provide you with the most gratification.
