I had a funky day at clinicals today. I just can't seem to gain confidence in my skills or ability to rationalize. When I think I understand I am thrown for a loop. Is there anyway to connect the how and why easier. Like remembering the med cards or the correct order of skills (ie sterile procedures). I remember things with repetition but in live skills have not been able to get alot of practice. I seem to contaminate (crossing over field) often or paint myself into a corner by forgeting supplies. My instructor says I need to exert more confidence. Any books or study tricks ????? I am a level 3 LVN student and will graduate in 3 more months. I feel overwhelmed!!!!
