I had to quit my CNA job

Hi all. Here is my story...I have a main job at a call center working 4:30 PM to 1:00 am (I make good money here and generally I like it) I can't afford to quit the call center job...I got my CNA and started working 7AM to 3 at a nursing home(making much less money but still working at call center) .....I loved it! What I didn't love-no sleep and it was causing problems with my significant other, having no time. I did the two jobs for about a month but had to quit the CNA job because I had a death in the family and just couldn't afford to quit the call center. The nursing home said I was welcome back but I just can't go back until I am back on my feet with fiances (which shouldn't be too long) and taken care of everything with my family. I know I can only work one job at a time. I love being a CNA, what should I do in the meantime? Volunteer? I planning to become an RN/LPN but any advice would be helpful!

Which days a week do you work the call center job?

My thought is you could work PRN on some of the days that you have off of your other job.

Working on call has been one of the best things I did to keep my skills up as a CNA. I had a steady job and then worked on call. I work for what's like a healthcare temp agency, you might look for something like that in your area.
