Parenteral nutrition is a life-saving intervention for patients where enteral nutrition cannot be achieved. In recent years, parenteral nutrition has been widely used thanks to advances in medicine and technological fields. Parenteral nutrition, which is a very complicated intervention, requires good care and teamwork at the beginning, treatment process and termination stages. The purpose of this review is to summarize the current literature on parenteral nutrition, as well as to raise awareness about the duties and responsibilities of nurses, one of the most important members of the nutritional support team, in parenteral nutrition.
