Hello All, I need some words of encouragement. I am doing well on what I would call the "book aspect" of 141; did well on my first theory exam, great on my first two lab quizzes. But I am really sucking in the lab, itself. I didn't pass the VS GAS first try (bp only) and yesterday I failed to pass on my 2nd try. I went in today and practiced, practiced, practiced -- started out great but didn't leave the lab feeling super confident (lord, will I ever leave that room feeling super confident?). I can get the bp dead on when I'm just practicing, but I apparently don't perform as well under pressure. I am absolutely miserable and am seconding guessing myself non-stop now about everything -- and not just bp, but nursing as a whole. I know I need to relax, I know I need to trust myself, but I've been taking down twice now. I'm now getting nervous that even when I do pass the bp, all the instructors will be out for my blood. I swear, they smell fear, they really do.
