You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as an Oncology Nurse Navigator.
Your compassion is tangible: patients feel it in the hand they hold. Families feel it in your prayers. Colleagues feel it in your support.
Youâ™re equally comfortable with serving as a patient liaison as well as a functioning as a clinical resource to patients, physicians, and the cancer program through all phases of cancer trajectory.
Youâ™re great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.
As Coloradoâ™s only accredited academic comprehensive cancer program, Cancer Centers of Colorado at Saint Joseph Hospital offers the choices in treatment and technology youâ™d expect from a national cancer institute but with a much more personal touch.
As part of a faith-based, mission-driven healthcare organization, Cancer Centers of Colorado makes it a priority to care for the body, mind and spirit of our patients. This unique blend of medical excellence and compassionate care makes Cancer Centers of Colorado a sound choice for comprehensive cancer care in Denver. We are proud to be an accredited Chest Pain Center, a Primary Stroke Center, and a private teaching hospital.
Saint Joseph Hospital is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 365-bed facility is one of the top-ranked hospitals in Denver, and has been awarded the highest national recognition possible for nursing excellence â“ Magnet designation â“ by the ANCC.

Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, weâ™ve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.
Together weâ™ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. Weâ™ll honor each otherâ™s dignity and surpass the standards we set. Weâ™ll encourage joy, demand safety and take pride in our integrity.
Weâ™ll laugh at each otherâ™s jokes (even the bad ones). Weâ™ll hello and high five. Weâ™ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.
Weâ™re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.
As an Oncology RN Navigator you need to know how to:
Provide guidance to the patient through the care process and plan of care. Establish early contact with cancer patients to identify and eliminate barriers to timely diagnosis and treatment. Serve as a clinical resource with expertise in oncology care management in reinforcing education with patients and families.
Utilize the nursing process to provide coordinated patient care by actively collaborating with other members of the healthcare team and case managing patients. Assess clinical, emotional, spiritual, psychosocial, financial and other patient needs.
Provide direct patient and family education, as well as community outreach, education, and screening. Coordinate discharge planning, development of a post-acute care plan, and coordination of post-acute services. Refer patients to appropriate clinical trials and supportive care services, as well as direct patients and families to available community resources.
Direct follow-up on patientsâ™ progress relative to their post-acute plan. Monitor and report on outcome measures.
Question and prevent duplication, fragmentation, or use of unnecessary resources. Question tests/procedures for which the purpose is unclear.
Track and collect data on patients including demographics, length of stay, and reason for extended stay. Participate in readmission analysis on assigned patients with sending hospital and inclusive of post-acute providers. Provide reports as needed.
We hire people, not resumes. But we also expect excellence, which is why we require:
