Guidance for the cancer journey
Novant Health Cancer Care is excited that our team of nurse navigators is expanding in number and in depth. Cancer nurse navigators are specialized nurses who have dedicated their career to assisting cancer patients and families through their cancer journey. The nurse navigator is an added layer of support for what can be challenging for patients and families to begin to understand about their diagnosis and treatment plan. Novant Health strives to create remarkable care for each patient, and our nurse navigators are an important way to ease this journey.
We would love to connect all cancer patients to a nurse navigator. If you would like to connect to one, please call 704-384-5373.
