    Good luck! It won't be as bad as you're thinking, but it's normal to be nervous.

    are you first semester?.....if so, your instructor knows you are scared and unsure of yourself, don't worry it won't be that bad!
    advice-ask questions, look professional, & try your hardest! your instructor will notice these things, even if you think she doesn't.

    Best of luck to you! It will go by fast and not to worry - you'll get better at all of your skills as you go through clinicals.

    Good luck. Try not to worry and most of all remember to breath....that was the best advice my first semester instructor gave us. Your instructors know you are nervous and scared. It will be ok. Remember also if you do not know something or do not understand something ask. The only stupid questions are the ones you do not ask. It is better to ask again and again then it is to harm your patients.

    Remember - act confident and smile. The patient has no idea it's your first day! Don't hesitate - take that first step into the patient's room and it'll all just flow from there.

    Good luck!
