Trying to raise my kids the best I can

Feelin' like a nurse

Yesterday I passed the injection certification and today they threw me in the fire. I gave my first injection! It was Vitamin B12 so it looked all science -fiction neon red. It was actually kind of anticlimactic after doing it a million times in the lab. The only difference was that, unlike my docile dummy, my patient flinched when I stuck the needle in her arm. And after she left and I was documenting I was shaking a little, like the nerves kicked in then. But all in all, it was pretty easy.

    I promise you'll get used to it. But honestly, I still get nervous sometimes doing IM injections on little old ladies with virtually no muscle mass. I choose shorter needles and I try to go with the highest gauge I can so that it's less painful for them.

    You did it! Yay for you! =)
