    i already got the job, i am now training/orienting. i was already able to shadow in AM shift. it was pretty intense. i saw a lot of charting... you do assessment everyday in your shift., on Days for 12hrs shift it's 2:12 with 1 aide... i hope i can keep up and do it smoothly when i start working alone.. i think it's the charting, documentation, and and all the writings are making the shift so busy even u have less pts
