A Little Nervous
Posted 16 June 2012 - 04:37 PM
I'd like to apologize in advance if this is in the wrong forum. I was recently accepted to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (the only med school in Arkansas). I'm taking the EMT course and, needless to say, I'm very nervous. It's all so new to me. I was wondering if anyone here had any tips for keeping my nerves calm.

Are you going to medical school? Or EMT school? Your post is unclear.
About what are you nervous? What are your normal coping mechanisms when you experience anxiety?

Eventually, my nervousness will be overidden by excitement. They're duking it out for top spot at the moment! I have a natural need to learn, so that will help some too.

Take it as one step at a time. There will always be nervousness, but I usually look at the new direction I am about to take! Excitement wins hands down. Yeah, there will always be some small elements of nerves, but you will get through it.
BTW, no need to apologize....

Much of EMS involves those types of nerves at one time or another. Instead of trying to eliminate those feelings, maybe try to learn and train within them before they're gone? They won't last long, and then the opportunity will be lost.
