Practical Nursing Skills – Nasogastric Insertion & Removal

Nasogastric tubes are part of the standard of care in treating intestinal obstructions and can be used to provide nutritional support. They are most common in surgical patients but are helpful in any patient population where gastric decompression or nutritional support is necessary. Nurses need to learn this skill as they are usually the healthcare professionals inserting and removing the device. At UCI, student practical nurses practice these skills in a simulation lab. If the opportunity arises in the clinical setting, they are knowledgeable and proficient and complete these tasks competently and with confidence.
