Dear Navigators, Social Workers, Administrators, and Clinical Staff,

Being in the company of other navigators is such a simple yet empowering way to advance your career and your navigation skills. Wondering how to connect with navigators in your area? The Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) offers Local Navigator Networks (LNNs) across the country to foster relationships among navigators. In fact, LNNs are the building blocks of our national AONN+ community. Not only does membership in an LNN strengthen your experience and skills as a navigator, but our expansive network of LNNs gives the AONN+ leadership an avenue of effective communication with LNN members. Joining an LNN is a great way to connect with other navigators locally and nationally while enhancing your ability to improve outcomes and the survivorship experience for patients.

On behalf of the AONN+ Leadership Council and the members of the 30 (and growing!) LNNs, I invite you to join a network or start one in your area.

Wondering if there is an LNN near you? Check out the listing of existing LNNs here.

Interested in establishing a new LNN? With the guidance and support you will receive from AONN+, starting an LNN is as easy as A-B-C!
