Just wrapped up my preceptorship and am really looking forward to working as an RN. However, I'm starting to get concerned about how and if I'll get over having shaky hands while doing phlebotomy and IV's. I've got about maybe 40ish blood draws under my belt and maybe 5 IV's. I know this is still not much, but when does the hand shaking/tremor go away? I'm fine giving injections, and using a straight needle doing blood draws helps cause I can anchor my hand (too sort of keep it from shaking), but using a butterfly and IV's is aweful. I try to relax (which I feel I am, I don't feel my heartbeat or anything) and take deep breaths, but the minute I have to make fine adjustments and have a light grip on the needle device, I can't stop the tremor. I'm going to pre-op next week to get more experience with IV's but am now nervous it's going to be a stinky experience if I can't find a way to relax my hands! Any advice or tips on things to try? Would a beta-blocker be a bad idea? I'm really contemplating asking my doctor.
