Nurse Navigators

Learning you have cancer can be frightening and overwhelming. Our Nurse Navigators offer a warm welcome into a world of cancer care.

Your doctors, nurses and other care providers are there to help, but it can be hard to process all the information you’re receiving. Hartford HealthCare Nurse Navigators are here for you, helping you make the most educated choices about your care and treatment. With their cancer expertise, they can help you understand your diagnosis and treatment, and provide assistance when you need it most.

They'll talk you through difficult decisions. Schedule appointments. And literally hold your hand through your treatments, if it helps you feel more comfortable and confident.

Our Nurse Navigators can:

  • Educate you and your loved ones about your individual cancer diagnosis and treatment options.
  • Help you make informed decisions about your treatment and care.
  • Advocate for you during treatment.
  • Coordinate the team of physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals.
  • Provide you with care.
  • Help you with your recovery and rehabilitation plans.
  • Provide moral support and a sympathetic ear.

When you hear the word cancer, there’s a whole range of emotions that washes over you – shock, anger, fear.
