Today I took my first psychomotor, written skills, and theory test. I failed my first attempted at my psychomotor. I failed at things I KNOW how to do. I can take a blood pressure and I can take an apical pulse listening to your heart with a stethoscope). However today I let my nerves get the best of me. I second guessed my counting on my apical pulse thinking that it was too fast. However had I kept counting the way I was I would have gotten in right. Then on my BP I was so worried about getting either the 1st or the 2nd reading right that I missed up one or the other both times. So next Tuesday I have to go back at 0830 and try again. Next time I am going to nail it because I got the hard parts completely right no problems. I now know what to expect so we will keep on. I will get it right and won’t let my nerves get me. If not guess I will be starting all over again in fall. I will not fail out on my first attempt. I will get it right. After I took the written part of the test I was fine. I wasn’t even worried about my theory test. I nailed them both. I am sure that I passed and I am sure I won’t let my nerves get the best of me and will pass my psychomotor with flying colors. Plus now I am requried to have at least 30 minutes practice with the lab manager and 30 minutes with a student who has passed there psychomotor. It will be just fine. Dear God I will not let the stress get to me. I will do. I will. With no doubts in my mind that I can’t.
