I am so excited, yesterday I got to give my first shot! It was Lovenox, which is given subQ. I was so nervous, and gung-ho, that I almost forgot to swab with alchohol first! :imbar But my instructor reminded me.
I just wanted to share my joy, my husband and kids weren't quite as thrilled with my news as I was!

My first shot i gave was at a nursing home last semester. All 40 of us nursing students went to a nursing home and gave flu & pneumo shots. I got to give it twice..cuz the patient i picked to give it to, my instructors asked if iwanted to try a 'challenging"pt..who wouldn't hold still. i did it just fine
but my second pt was alot easier. hehe.
