I never knew what I wanted to be...nursing kind of just fell in my lap (literally) and i started the month after. I'm almost done now and
nursing school has been awesome! I'm so passionate about it now that I started a blog haha
anyway, you definitely get over the fear of needles! My teacher made us practice with each other so we'd get the initial fear done and over with.
Once you start med surge, you will definitely get over that fear. You will have to give tons of shots...
just know that your instructors are there to help and guide you. it's all about baby steps! you'll start off by pricking fingers, then giving subcutaneous shots. after giving about 3 subcu shots, you'll be able to advance to IM injections. just make sure you take every opportunity you get no matter how scared you are of even if you think youre not ready. your teacher will help you and you'll slowly get used to it
