A Nurse Navigator…

is a medical professional whose clinical expertise and training guides patients and their caregivers to make informed decisions, collaborating with a multidisciplinary team to allow for timely cancer screening, diagnosis, treatment, and increased supportive care throughout the cancer journey. In essence, nurse navigators guide patients through the healthcare system and help them to overcome barriers to optimal care. Our lay patient navigator or Promotores de Salud is a trained community health worker who helps in reaching the vulnerable and underserved members of our community. The navigation of patients with cancer requires extensive knowledge, specialized skills, and good clinical judgment, which can improve outcomes.

Our navigators are here to help you!
