Nurse Navigators

For many of our patients, battling cancer is an all-encompassing effort. Patients who are newly diagnosed with cancer have the added support of a specialized oncology nurse navigator to help them through their diagnosis and treatment.

Nurse navigators provide a direct point of contact for patients who have questions about their diagnosis and treatment, help patients deal with a myriad of issues throughout their care and refer them to a variety of resources to help them with their individual needs. Nurse navigators attend weekly multidisciplinary conferences, to discuss each individual patient’s case and status.

Reflecting on the care and support she received, one patient recently referred to her nurse navigator as her "guardian angel."
