I don't have any tips, just wanted to say good luck!
Try to remain calm - I failed my IV check-offs last semester just because I got so worked up/emotional that I couldn't concentrate!
I'm graduating very soon- 22 more class days!- and last week at clinical, as I was giving a morphine IV push, I remembered how terrified I was to give all of my 'firsts'....IM, SQ, hanging a primary, priming tubing (which i now do every day at work!)...and I thought I would *never* get to a point where I could push IV meds. Well, I did, and you will, too. Wanna know what lab I failed? The one on giving an enema. I couldn't remember if it was left or right Sims. Well, you better believe I figured it out- and I never got it wrong again. Making mistakes on everything won't happen to you, I can say with certainty- but when you *do* make mistakes, you'll learn it for GOOD.
I know it seems daunting now, but you'll learn by doing. that was hard for me- I'd always learned by reading, or seeing- not by doing, which is the only way to do it in nursing. it's a different way of learning, but you WILL become proficient in it. Good luck- you'll be great!
