In neonatal intensive care units, health events occur in which the physiological state of the newborn is deteriorated or complicated, therefore, it is feasible to indicate the importance of channeling a percutaneous route for the administration of food and parenteral medications, which will contribute to minimize the risk of complications associated with neonatal care. The objective of this study was to determine the level of knowledge of the nursing staff of the neonatology area in the care and management of the percutaneous catheter of peripheral insertion of the Hospital Teófilo Dávila Machala. A scientific, descriptive, analytical and quantitative research was carried out with a population of 32 nurses. 87.9% were female, the prevalent age range was 26 - 30 years, 78.8% had a bachelor's degree, 90.9% were nurses, 42.4% had 2-5 years of work experience. According to the level of knowledge of the nursing staff in percutaneous catheter care before the educational intervention was low with 60.6%, increasing the knowledge after the intervention with 54.5% with a high level. In conclusion, it is necessary for the nursing staff to update their knowledge regularly in order to provide quality and warmth care to the users.
