Hi all! I have my initial NRP Nov. 12, and I am terrified. I have been working in the NICU since late June-early July (still on orientation). I get off orientation in a few short weeks. It's not that I don't know the stuff (and I plan to study like crazy the next couple of days too)--I just get so nervous taking those kind of tests. We had these kind of things in nursing school too where we had to perform the skill (as a test) for our instructor. These always made me way more nervous than actually doing the skill in a clinical situation. I don't know why. I'm just afraid that my nerves are going to cause me to fail this. I know we have class all day and go through it over and over it before actually testing on it, but I even get nervous practicing with the instructors watching (we had a small pre-NRP practice class with one of the instructors, who is also one of our unit NNPs). They say no one ever fails, but I am just so stressed out about it! i'm just hoping someone will have some words of wisdom and/or encouragement for me! Thanks in advance!
