This lecture reviews cases that showcase the important role of the urologic nurse, highlighting how she or he can make a positive impact on men and women through simple (e.g., suggesting a different catheter to decrease UTIs) or complex urologic nursing interventions (e.g., Botox injections). The presentation empowers nurses to continue in urology by focusing on the positive impact that knowledge, caring, and collaboration can make on patient care - “miracles” can happen!
