Today, the Jaten procedure, which provides anatomical repair, is a frequently preferred method in the surgical treatment of transposition of the great arteries. This case report aimed to draw attention to the effect of the nursing care given in the postoperative period to the newborn who underwent the Jaten procedure, on the prevention of complications and the reduction of discharge time. In the case report, confidentiality and ethical principles were adhered to, and the written consent of the patient's legal guardian was obtained. The patient underwent the Jaten procedure, peritoneal dialysis was started, he was taken to extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, a pacemaker was inserted, and a tracheostomy was opened. The patient who left extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and peritoneal dialysis, whose pacemaker was turned off, and whose hemodynamics was stable, was taken to the service on the 59th post-operative day and was discharged with recovery 2 days later. Planning the nursing care and evaluating the results of the care for the problems experienced and may be experienced by the newborns undergoing the Jaten procedure are of great importance in preventing the development of complications in the patient and reducing the transfer time from the intensive care unit to the clinic.
