Yes: Yes, nurses are qualified to be trained to administer tube feedings. There are many different formulations of nutrition solutions as well as routes of tube feeding -for example a tube placed in the stomach vs small intestine, vs through the nose. Some feeding regimens also require use of an "IV" type pump, which nurses can be trained to deliver.
