Study purpose: The aim of this study is to assess knowledge and practice of ICU nurses regarding mechanically ventilated patients endotracheal suctioning in Khartoum teaching hospital. Methods: This is a descriptive cross-sectional hospital based study. A total coverage (42 nurses) sampling technique was used to select nurses. All nurses working in Khartoum teaching hospital ICU included in the study. Result: the majority of nurses working in Khartoum teaching hospital (35.7%) have 2 mon-1 year working experience, (85.7%) have poor knowledge level, (76.7%) have fair practice level, and there is no significant relationship between working experience & levels of knowledge & practice. Conclusion: Nurses have better practical level than knowledge level and they were not affected by nurse’s length experience as there should be.
