Thank a Nurse – It’s Urologic Nurses Week! This week – November 1 – 7 – is Urologic Nurses and Associates Week. As those with bladder cancer know, nurses play a very important role in their treatment and care. Nurses are the first line of communication to educate patients, listen to their concerns, and help when there is a medical emergency.
