  1. 0 I started my first I.V. today and got it on the first try! It was so awesome! I have been drawing blood for five years but have not done any since school started. It felt good to be back in a vein, and the whole I.V. with the advancing the cath gave a element of a new challenge. It was great! Just wanted to share. Feel high

    I was going to post the same thing! Congrats to you!
    I started my first today too, although it wasn't perfectly smooth. I am not familiar with the retracting needles, and as I was advancing the catheter, the needle retracted on me( those darn little buttons), so I only had 1/2 of the catheter inserted. My instructor " floated" it in the rest of the way. The man had been in the hospital a long time and had bruises up and down his arms, so I felt pretty good! Woo Hoo 20 gauge! ha ha!
