On your third shift, she says, “Today we’re going to focus on the admission process. We’ll take up to three new admits to give you time to practice.”You watch Nancy do the first admit. Then you work your way through the next two with many prompts from Nancy. There are aspects of the process that are familiar to you from prior experience, but the paperwork and notification processes are different. As you finish, Nancy says, “You’ve done everything on this checklist at least once, so I will sign off on it.
