Nutrition nurses are clinical specialists with expertise in nutrition support who focus on assessing the diets of patients with various medical conditions. A nutrition nurse may plan food education programs, develop and guide the preparation of special meal plans, recommend dietary changes and options for a poor diet, create wellness programs for organizations, assist individuals to lose weight, treat illnesses by promoting healthy eating habits, and manage enteral (feeding tubes) and parenteral nutrition in patients who are unable to eat or drink normally.  Nutrition nurses must possess knowledge in clinical dietetics, nutrition science, medical nutrition therapy and participate in ongoing education related to current nutrition recommendations and guidelines.

In this Nutrition Nursing library, we’ve assembled resources to help you provide the best care to your patients. Our Pocket Cards are quick, handy references to utilize when you are caring for a patient with a total parenteral nutrition. Refer to the Guideline Summaries to learn need-to-know information from the latest recommendations. Our infographics, tips and mnemonics, and blogs are additional resources to help you during your nutrition nursing career.
