cyclosporine solution via enteral tube

I've seen a variation of this question posted before, but not answered.
How does your organization set the nurse up for cyclosporine administration via enteral tube? The manufacturer supplied syringe is NOT ENFit compatible, creating a difficult situation for administration of this hazardous drug.

Appreciate input from others,
