The Oncology Nurse Navigator I (ONN) provides individualized assistance to patients, families, and caregivers to overcome barriers within the healthcare system and ensure new patients are seen at the Center for Cancer Care as soon as possible. The ONN organizes and conducts Navigation Appointments to provide a rapid response to new referrals, to provide a warm and hospitable environment, and assess and respond to patient and family needs early on. The ONN also facilitates the activity required to prepare for a patients first consult and manages the communication to the patient and family from initial referral to first consult. This role sits at the intersection of patient needs and a complex healthcare delivery system, and success in this position requires an ability to navigate challenges that cross the traditional “silos” of healthcare and serve as an advocate for patients. The ONN operates under the supervision and guidance of the Clinical Nurse Manager.
