Meet your nurse in the family.

A diagnosis of cancer can trigger a scary, confusing journey. Don’t go it alone. RN Cancer Guides is a professional oncology nursing navigator service that insures a qualified RN can be with you or your loved one each and every step of the way.

Our team approach to cancer care is welcomed by doctors and medical staff who know and trust us, and understand that working in concert provides an added layer of communication and can improve outcomes for the patients we serve. We act as your voice and will become a proactive liaison between our patients and their treatment team. We also keep the entire family and circle of support informed and reassured regarding procedures, results, therapies, and expectations, and are available day and night.

When cancer strikes, it’s comforting to know you have a proven oncology team on your side. Now, you also have a nurse in the family.

Your Questions Answered

Will my doctors want to work with a 3rd party nursing consultant?

Doctors and medical staff are very receptive to our RN Cancer Guides. We are sure to convey a team approach and not an adversarial relationship. Your doctor wants the best possible outcome for you and so do we. We are experts and have many years of physician relationship building to ensure that your voice and concerns are heard. You’re doctor determines your medical treatment plan. We facilitate in the communication on your behalf.

What do you do that is different from the nurses in my doctor’s office or at the hospital?

Medical staff in the doctor’s office or hospitals are overwhelmed with returning phone calls, appointments, educating and coordinating care as well as other demands made on their time. Unfortunately, this doesn’t allow for much as they would like to spend with a patient and family. We are a supplemental resource for them. We are fortunate to be able to spend as much time as it takes to address your concerns and assist in streamlining your care.
