Nurse Navigators

A diagnosis of cancer can be overwhelming. Legacy's nurse navigators are here to help. Our nurse navigators can make this difficult time more manageable and less frightening for you and your loved ones. Nurse navigators are an active resource and support for our newly diagnosed cancer patients.


Nurse's art helps with healing

Navigating you through

From diagnosis through recovery, your cancer nurse navigator will help you:

  • Understand your diagnosis and your care choices
  • Know possible side effects, handle symptoms
  • Voice questions to your doctor and team
  • Learn about your medications
  • Get support from groups inside and outside of Legacy, including Legacy's many cancer support services and the Legacy Cancer Healing Center, for integrative care and survivorship services designed to help improve your quality of life
  • Look for help if you have work or money worries
  • Explore transit choices
  • Find your way around our hospitals
  • Review family support resources
