Organ transplantation is an effective method in the treatment of end-stage organ failure. The multidisciplinary approach to the supply of high quality and efficient organs has always been a crucial step in transplantation. When the removed organ is not well protected, damaged during transport or prolonged ischemia time, organ function deteriorates. Therefore, it is necessary to reduce posttransplant ischemia-reperfusion injury to maintain organ viability and metabolism until transplantation takes place. For this reason, the proper protection and storage of the removed organs can prevent organ loss due to long-term ischemia and more patients can be transplanted. It is necessary to organize personnel and institutions for the protection, procurement, transportation and carrying out the necessary laboratory tests. In multi-organ extraction, organ transplant coordinator physician/nurse provides coordination and cooperation between surgical teams. In addition, nurses play an important role in the process of organ transplantation in order to provide quality organs. Information updates are important to meet the growing need for organ transplants and to improve the reliability of the ever-expanding donor pool. However, it was found that nurses participated in the organ harvesting process through experience without any formal training or information. Also; It is shown that nurses do not have knowledge about organ donation process and surgical procedure. Since the organ extraction process training of the nurses takes place in the operating room environment, more comprehensive training and consultancy is needed in this regard. Our articles, information about the role of the nurse in organ harvesting processes is presented.
