    Just another example of how nursing has become a cash cow for so many schools, and they are milking that teat for all it's worth.

    I had to buy a similar bag of supplies but it contained several bags of fluids, a few sets of tubing, foley catheter kit, suctioning kit, ng tube, piston and syringe set, fake insulins, needles and syringes, insulin needles,just odds and ends of supplies and it was 167 dollars but it had a lot of stuff in it. I would say it was worth it. I used it throughout my entire program.

    google up a bag of normal saline and it will cost you $7 bux the most..

    I work in the missions field I help supply mission teams with medical supplies. In the last few weeks I have been tossing expired fluids, lines, needles, and syringes since we can not send them out of country. If the equipment was being used for lab work only (not on real patients) I would rather send them to a school that can use them then toss them. I cry to see such things get tossed because they expire. They are great training aids.

    For when I do training I take some of the supplies with me to practice with in the labs. I can use them and dispose of them and also lets some of the other students use them towho don't have access to the supplies.

    Call your local community college nursing program, I'm sure they'd be happy to have them. Our lab was mostly expired/donated supplies.
