Along with the dire need in U.S. hospitals, cancer care centers, community centers, etc. for both lay Patient Navigators and Nurse Navigators, comes the need for people (with and without medical experience) to receive exceptional Patient Navigation training. Many would-be navigators, however, require financial support in order to achieve the PN certification required for jobs in this field: Scholarships.
