I know how you feel!!!
I do not start the actual nursing program until January, but right now I am taking a Med First Responder class (I was already done w/all the other pre and co-reqs), and we have to do skill assessments all the time. It is sooooooooo nervewracking!!!
I seriously *know* the material, and practice on family, but when it comes to one-on-one time w/the prof I freak out! I start to tremble, my neck and chest get splotchy, my voice wavers, I start sweating, and I draw blanks and just sit there like a complete idiot! I'm a fairly intelligent person; I have been working with the public for almost 14 years, and yet when I have to do these assessments I just become spaz. :selfbonk:
I hope at least (for me) that these assessments now are helping to desensitize me for what is to come with skills check-offs.
*sigh* I guess I cannot help in this situation, but at least you can rest assured that you are not alone!!!
Good luck... lol... to both of us!
