The Nurses' Choice Awards recognize the many nurses across the country who go above and beyond for their patients everyday."

"The nursing profession offers a rich environment full of opportunity for dedicated people with varied interests, strengths and passion," said Curtis Bloch, Tangent Medical Vice President of Sales & Marketing.

We are excited to open new opportunities to recognize and engage clinicians, especially as we concentrate on commercializing the NovaCath, which will elevate the nurses' ability to provide excellence in patient care."
