I need help with a situation. I am a new nursing student and at the beginning of our clinical orientation a few weeks ago, our clinical group practiced blood glucose monitoring on each other. Well, I almost passed out when we did this. I am not sure what it was because normally the sight of my own blood does not bother me, the prick was not painful at all, and I am a CNA in a hospital and have done this to others about a million times! The same thing happens to me when I have to get blood drawn, I feel like I'm going to hit the floor. I'm worried because soon we are going to be giving each other injections and starting IVs on each other and I'm worried I'm going to keel over every time we go to lab. When we were doing the BGM I tried to contain it to myself so nobody would notice and had to tell myself to calm down and breathe which helped some, but I still got this feeling. Anybody have any words of wisdom as to how to not be like this?
