About oncology nurse navigators

Think of us as your personal guides through your cancer treatment. As nurse navigators, we know that cancer journeys are different for every patient and can come with a wide range of needs and emotions, but it's our mission and passion to help you throughout your journey with empathy and understanding.

At Main Line Health, nurse navigators are registered nurses with specialized training to help you through each stage of care. Your nurse navigator will teach you about your cancer and treatment, advocate for your best interests and help you stay organized so you can focus on healing. We'll also help you and your loved ones access all services available at Main Line Health including our financial advisors, social workers and support groups should you need them. Our philosophy is to treat you as a whole person — mind, body and spirit — not just as a diagnosis.
