Oncology Nurse Navigators

"We're Here for You..." 

Receiving a diagnosis of cancer is often overwhelming. In addition to experiencing a myriad of emotions such as shock, anxiety, and fear, patients will deal with a host of logistical challenges. Common questions you may have as a patient include:

  • “What do I do now?”
  • “How am I going to get through this?”
  • “Who will help me?”

This is where you can take a deep breath and rely on your oncology nurse navigator. We are here to guide and support you through your treatment journey to wellness and recovery.

Oncology Navigators Are Your Cancer Care Guide

Your oncology navigator is knowledgeable about all aspects of cancer care and the cancer care system. Navigators view the healthcare system through your perspective as a patient. They are aware of the treatment(s); as well as, experiences you can expect through your cancer journey. Furthermore, Navigators are knowledgeable of any community resources that can help support you and your family during treatment and recovery. This integral part of your Erlanger care team communicates with the entire healthcare team and collaborates on your behalf to facilitate seamless quality care.
