:-) Hi nisice, Wow! talk about a bomb being dropped on you. That's kind of "Dirty Pool" leaving without giving you training. Well for one thing I would start going through all the records and daily schedule books so you can become familiar-with what has been the norm there. (kinds of activities- on what days-where things are. Maybe ask for a volunteer to give you a little assistance til you become a little more oriented.You can always change some things later. but I'd stick to what's normal for now.You should be able to figure out whats been going on there from her records and schedules. Don't be afraid to ask for some help in getting started. I'm sure they realize the dificulty.Hope it's a little help to you. Good luck.......alwaysfun

What kind of education and experience do you have for this job? Also what kind of pay and benefits? Tell me what you do on your job. I am curious because I am looking into this career field and live in Indiana.
