I am starting nursing school in January (Lord willing and the creek don't rise!)
Yesterday, I went to the hospital for an interview with the Lab...I felt this would be a job with great experience.... I feel like I stand a good chance getting the job...b/c school is around the corner and I have a previous degree (nonmedical). I originally thought the job was like "errand girl" or something. I am terrified now and having second thoughts! I have no experience drawing blood! This will be my job! UGH! I was told that I would be trained...the job is from 5a.m. to 12:30 4 days a week...and the pay is decent...but I am told that I will be going to nursing homes to draw blood and the patients are kind of combative!yikes! Is this too much for someone like me? I am not scared of needles but terrified I will miss and poke an eye out or something! help! Anyone have any blood drawing pointers?
