Why am I so nervous?

Okay, so I work for a health agency.  I primarily just do aide work at different nursing homes.  I've done one health clinich just doing blood pressures.   well, my agency just called and said I'm needed to draw blood for a few days.  This is one of my favorite things I did while in school for medical assisting.  The thing is, I'm a nervous wreck.  lol.  It'll be my first time drawing blood unsupervised EVER.  lol.  I'm a "pro" at sticking, I've missed twice in the hundreds of sticks I did in school, but I'm not a "pro" at always knowing what tube is needed.  I'm just nervous because I don't know what to expect.

Well, I've done 100s of patients during my clinicals at the doctor's office.  But I always had the medical assistant or the doctor somewhere close by incase I had a question about the tubing color.
