Nurse Navigator Networking & Resources
The role of a Nurse Navigator as the point of contact on an interdisciplinary team coordinating patient care continues to evolve in the healthcare environment. In addition to coordinating patient care, Nurse Navigators demonstrate expertise in clinical practice, patient education, staff education, research, data, marketing, patient management, and acting as a clinical liaison.
NAON is committed to offering networking and educational resources to our growing orthopaedic navigator community. Check out those resources and networking events below to discover new ways to share best practices, patient education improvements, program advances, and current interests.
