Hello, fellow nursing students. I had a competency today for my ASN program where I had to administer an SQ Heparin injection and do a Foley Catheter. Ok, I have the steps down. I know what to do how to do it and everything in between. But I ended up with a C on my competency (which is a pass) because I got so nervous and everything just fled my mind. Has anyone else ever had this issue and how do you go about calming your nerves?
I also get nervous at clinical but that is getting better. I am confident in myself but just as a natural reaction I get shakey and nervous
