I'm a junior in a BSN program now, and at times, I still feel overwhelmed! All of the skills end up coming together..yesterday was my first day back and we had to demonstrate the skills we learned last semester on the school's mannequins. These skills included IV push, IM, giving meds through an NG tube, and a foley catheter insertion. When I first learned these skills, it was awkward and it took me some practicing to figure out my technique and become comfortable with what I was doing. But yesterday, I was able to finish these skills quickly and efficiently-just because I have been practicing so much with the mannequins and my trusty practice syringe and vial.
Also, remember that we are all in the process of learning. Ask questions-that's what the instructors are there for. Some days I still doubt myself, but it's good to vent to friends who are going through what you are going through. Good luck in your endeavors! :redpinkhe
