Urology is a medical specialty that focuses on the treatment of conditions related to the urinary tract in males and females and the male reproductive system. Urology nurses are registered nurses that provide care to patients with a variety of urological conditions.

What does a urology nurse do?

Urology nurses provide nursing care to patients with urinary tract conditions, kidney disorders, and problems related to the male reproduction organs, such as cancer, kidney and bladder stones, and infections. They perform patient assessments, conduct urological examinations, obtain medical histories, check vital signs, administer medication, and document observations and procedures in the patient’s medical chart. They also consistently monitor treatment procedures and notify doctors of any abnormal reactions. Urology nurses often order, perform, and interpret diagnostic tests. They also provide education to patients and caregivers regarding proper care. Urology nurses often focus on preventative care and they perform checkups and routine screenings.

Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

Most urology nurses also gain professional Certified Urologic Registered Nurse (CURN) certification from the Certification Board for Urologic Nurses and Associates (CBUNA). Certification requirements include a current RN license, at least 1 year of urology experience, and passing a written examination. Urology nurses must complete regular continuing education to maintain their licenses and certifications, keep their skills current, and stay abreast on the advancements in the field.

Employment of all registered nurses is expected to grow much faster than average for all professions, increasing 22% from 2008 to 2018 (1). The growing and aging population and increased need for urology care will drive job growth of urology nurses.

Job prospects should be excellent especially for urology nurses that have extensive experience and professional certification. Many job openings will arise from the need to replace urology nurses that retire, transfer, or leave the field for other reasons.

Urology nurses must have a solid understanding of the urinary tract and male reproductive system and the variety of treatment procedures. Patience, critical thinking, compassion, and good problem solving skills are necessary characteristics. Urology nurses must have excellent bedside manner and the ability to help patients feel at ease. They must also have good communication and be able to work as part of a team.
