Hi, My name is Adria and I am a student, I will be starting clinicals in August. I was wondering if anyone could explain the process of giving shots, drawing blood, and putting in IV's. Also, Can anyone tell me any tricks of the trade to make these processes virtually painless for the patient. I am very nervous of not being good at these tasks, and am afraid of causing the paitent any significant pain. I am somewhat wary of needles, so this is something that I want to overcome and become really good at. Please help all of you excellent needle experts!!!!!
