    Don't wear a lot of makeup in the event a case of the nervous sweats comes upon you.

    the nicer you and the more confident you appear the more likely it is the client will let you do whatever you need to do.

    My water broke my second day of clinicals, just try to remember it can't get much worse than that lol.

    aaaahhhh. I only have 10 more clinical days left. I thought I would never get through it, but I did. You will too. Take each day as it comes. Try not to worry about tomorrow. Wake up and tell yourself, "It's a new day". At least you have the wonderful support of this site. I, myself, just found this a few weeks ago. When I started clinicals, I had no one to talk to (except my sister, who was just finishing nursing school at the time). You'll do fine. Keep us posted.
