Nasogastric feeding is recommended for nutritionally ill patients who cannot use a proper or safe oral diet. Nasogastric tube feeding refers to the delivery of nutrients and drugs through the feeding tube from nose into the stomach. Previous studies revealed that knowledge and practices regarding nasogastric tube feeding are inappropriate. The aim of this study was to evaluate the nurse’s practices regarding NG tube feeding. It was a Quasi experimental observational study conducted in two hospitals of Lahore. Participants were registered nurses and random sampling technique was used to select the sample. Sample size was 200, margin of error was 0.5% and confidence level was 95% and data was collected through direct observation. The results showed that more than 50% nurses’ practices were medium. Majority of the nurses had appropriate practices regarding NG tube feeding. Training intervention could improve nurses’ performance regarding NGT feeding. Thus, it can be appropriate and useful in improving the quality of care for the patients.
