Where to buy a nursing lab kit

  1. Hi: I've been a paperwork nurse for several years now. I am taking a job in August, teaching a CNA II course. Before I start teaching, I want to make double sure I'm still performing sterile procedures correctly and I'm interested in purchasing a nursing lab kit. Remember way back when we took Nursing 101? A kit with the foley cathether practice supplies, sterile gloves and dressings, trach care supplies, wound care practice. Where can I buy one of these? I'm sure I can get it online, but I don't know what the company would be. Can someone educate me please?

    I don't know of any companies selling the nurse kits, but I suggest you contact any nursing/vocational school in your area & ask them what supplier they use for student nurse kits. Once you find out the name of the supplier, tell them you're a student & they should offer you a discounted price.

    I agree with Nurse Kissy. Try the local community college's bookstore. I don't know if they would even sell something like that online.

    We bought a kit that was put together by our school. We bought it at the bookstore. You could only get it if you were on a list though...no one off the street. Maybe if you contact a local community college they would help you out for a fee or put you in contact with their supplier.

    Call your hospital and see if they will donate you a few things! Maybe a foley kit that was opened and not used or something like that.

    Someone not long ago posted a similar question. I can't remember the link that was given, but do remember the company name they bought the kit from so I googled them and you can find a kit here. Hope it helps

    Crike! That site is awesome. I haven't been a student in about 25 years, but I feel a sudden urge to buy that skeleton, in fact the only thing stopping me is the price tag. And no, I'm actually not kidding.

    in addition to refreshing your skills and policy review, check your states requirements for cna instructor--pa requires certification.

    see info: cna training program, manual - nursing for nurses
