Urology Nursing

Learn How to Become a Urology Nurse

Urology nurses care for patients with urinary tract problems such as urinary tract infections, kidney stones, cancers, prostatitis, or other specific conditions. Urology nurses perform initial evaluations of symptoms, assist doctors with diagnostic and treatment procedures, and provide expert patient education and counseling services. Many urology nurses are trained to provide checkups and care for certain common conditions without having to consult with physicians first.
