Nasojejunal tubes (NJT) as the name suggests, should have their tip in the proximal jejunum. Knowledge of normal anatomy is important because the tubing should be seen to follow the contours of the duodenum and pass the expected position of the D-J flexure to ensure its tip is in an appropriate position.
