Nurse Navigator

A Partner for the Journey

North Kansas City Hospital's breast, lung and colon cancer patients benefit from a unique program led by nurse navigators—professionals who provide personal assistance throughout the cancer journey.

What is a Nurse Navigator?

Nurse navigators are nurses specially trained and experienced in working with cancer patients. They know how challenging the journey can be. These compassionate advocates work one-on-one with cancer patients and their families to help them through all phases of diagnosis and treatment.

Nurse navigators at North Kansas City Hospital can provide:

  • Education on cancer, radiation, chemotherapy and other treatments
  • Early detection resources
  • Smoking cessation assistance
  • Assistance making appointments
  • Access to clinical trials
  • Access to other helpful resources
  • General support for patients and their families, including monthly support groups

If you are a cancer patient at North Kansas City Hospital and have not been assigned a nurse navigator, talk with your healthcare provider.
