What Does an Urology Nurse Do?

A Urology Nurse specializes in the care and treatment of patients with diseases and disorders of the urinary system and the male reproductive system. They work with patients of all ages who are dealing with conditions such as urinary tract infections, kidney stones, incontinence, prostate cancer, and bladder cancer.

Urology Nurses assist with procedures such as cystoscopies, catheterizations, vasectomies, and other surgical interventions. They are responsible for patient education, preoperative and postoperative care, managing symptoms, and providing emotional support. These nurses also help patients manage the lifestyle changes that often accompany urologic conditions.

They work in various settings, including hospitals, urology clinics, outpatient surgical centers, and research institutions. Urology Nurses need a good understanding of urologic diseases and treatments, and they must be adept at patient assessment and education. Their specialized care is crucial in helping patients manage their conditions effectively and maintain a good quality of life.
