When a patient is diagnosed with cancer he or she can become overwhelmed. Undergoing various treatments and dealing with healthcare professionals from different specialties like radiologists, pharmacists, and oncologists can be a lot to handle.

Navigators who work with cancer patients already have nursing experience, but take navigation-specific classes to become fully qualified.
