Potter and Perry clinical book has all of the clinical procedures in details. What procedures are you having problems with? If it's something simple like blood pressures, you could purchase a cuff and practice on family members or get a nurse tech position.

I don't know what to say....I just completed my second semester and have done very few skills other than meds and injections....discontinued a Foley and NG tube...I have been hired for a SN internship at a local hospital this summer and am really hoping to get a lot of opportunities to use the skills before the fall. Maybe you could try to find a job in a hospital as a tech or aide?!?!

I have this funny feeling you're not alone in this boat. I bet a lot of nurses graduate from school w/o a lot of skills practice...
