Meet Our Oncology & Breast Nurse Navigators

The nurse navigators at RWJBarnabas Health are nurses who assist patients in “navigating” the medical system. The nurse navigators work with the patients to coordinate the individual’s care. They can facilitate and schedule necessary appointments and procedures; educate patients on medical conditions and treatment options; work in tandem with physicians and family members to facilitate additional services and answer questions. The navigators serve as personal resources to their patients throughout their treatment and beyond.
