    you will definetely learn time management! You sign on with an agency, do all their really long paperwork and competencies then they tell you if there are shifts avail in the area that you have experience with. Many places do not give any orientation. So when they call you you just go to that floor and work your shift. Hopefully if you show up a little early the charge nurse can show you the break room, store room, get you a sign in for the med dispense, etc. So you just go in and work. Some places are great, some are really horrible. good luck!
