CPNE and gloves

  1. I bought the CPNE kit from excelsior, surgical gloves 7 1/2 and the clean gloves (no size indicated), they're too long to fit my fingers and I am concerned because when I do my wound packing for instance, the glove fingers are floppy and gets in the way. I bought 6 1/2 from a local pharmacy but they are so hard to put on, too tight and takes too much time. Any idea about the gloves they provide at the CPNE?

    They have several sizes to choose from, and you can try them on before you start testing.

    At albany med they were s m l. You get time to try them on before you have to perform the skills.

    They had the non sterile in S/M/L, but the sterile were sized (I believe 6, 6.5, 7, 7.5 and 8 (maybe 8.5)) in Lubbock.

    There is a skills kit that students can purchase. Worth the money, in my opinion.
