The role of nurse navigators

Legacy Cancer Institute's nurse navigators are there to make a difficult time more manageable and less frightening for you and your loved ones. 

Our nurse navigators are registered nurses with experience caring for cancer patients. Most are also oncology-certified nurses, which means they have additional education and national certification in cancer care.

Your cancer nurse navigator can help you:

  • Understand your cancer diagnosis and your care options
  • Plan for possible side effects and handle symptoms
  • Voice questions to your doctor and team
  • Learn about your medications
  • Look for help if you have financial concerns and transportation issues, through referrals to Legacy or community services
  • Find your way around our hospitals and clinics
  • Connect you to Legacy’s cancer support services 
  • Find additional support through local, nonprofit community groups

Build your support system

Nurse navigators are ready to assist you from diagnosis through treatment and recovery. Call 503-413-8888 or toll free at 1-877-777-0112 to contact a navigator.
