Transplant Nurse Coordinators

Upon the first visit, the patient will meet with a transplant coordinator—a Registered Nurse with special training in transplantation. The Transplant Coordinator, with help from the Patient Navigators, schedules all tests and appointments from pre- evaluation to follow up care. This individual will be the patient’s main clinical partner through the transplantation process, explaining every step along the way.
