Where Can I Work?

So I'm about 4 months into my LPN program in NY. Before starting, I was lucky enough to get money from my father that just wanted me to focus on school and not work. However, I'm going to need to have some sort of job by November or December because it's simply not enough to last me until I graduate in April 2020. I also don't want to ask for more money from him. My question is where can I work that will respect my school schedule and just give me anywhere from 1-2 shifts a week? I would like to make my time worthwhile and work in some sort of medical setting. I don't have any CNA, MA, HHA or PCT certifications though so that kinda complicates things a bit. 

For those that work while going to LPN school, what do you do? I have a few classmates that are fulltime CNAs and PCTs and they can BARELY stay awake but somehow manage to have decent grades. I have so much respect for them. I dont know how they do it. This program is so demanding and the only reason my grades are high is because I don't have a job or kids to worry about. I think 1-2 shifts a week is the most I can do lol.

Hey, lovely, Congrats on being in your fourth month of nursing school. Have you tried to apply for grants or loans to cover schooling? Loans don't require the start of repayment right away. They want payments 6 months after graduation. You never have to pay back grants or scholarships. Should look into this before you seek employment somewhere, which will take away from your study time. Good luck.
