Nurses who 'navigate' - a new field emerges in cancer care

HOUSTON (October03, 2017)

Angela Sisk followed in the footsteps of her grandmother, Dorothy Robson, a registered nurse, and earned a Bachelor's of Nursing in 1996, then a Master's of Nursing in 2005. In her 20 years as a practicing nurse, they've all been spent as an Oncology Nurse where she helps patients with cancer overcome, and sometimes cope with succumbing to, the disease. Sisk is among a new breed of oncology nurses called, "Nurse Navigators" at Memorial Hermann Cancer Centerat Greater Heights on the North Loop near Ella Boulevard. Sisk, along with four other nurses at Memorial Hermann, are the first in Houston and some of the first in the nation to be certified by The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators, a national organization dedicated to patient well-being during cancer treatment and recovery.
