Oncology Nurse Navigator 

A diagnosis of cancer can be devastating. Trying to understand all the different aspects of various treatment options and care plans can be confusing. That’s why Baylor Medical Center at Irving has an Oncology Nurse Navigator available to all newly diagnosed cancer patients and their families free of charge.

From Cancer Patient to Cancer Survivor

The Oncology Nurse Navigator is an oncology certified-nurse who is the single point of contact for patients, family members, physicians and caregivers throughout the continuum of cancer care to survivorship.  The navigator serves patients and their families by helping them:

  • Understand the diagnosis, treatment options and care plan goals
  • Schedule tests and consultations with a team of health care professionals
  • Navigate the maze of doctor’s offices, hospital units and outpatient treatments
