Orthopedic Nurse Navigator

Is it time to consider joint replacement? That can be a difficult question to answer on your own. That’s why Amanda Kelly, BSN, RN, our orthopedic nurse navigator, is here to help. Amanda has worked as a nurse on Valley’s orthopedic unit since graduating with her BSN from William Paterson University in 2010. In her current role, Amanda will work with every patient preparing to undergo total joint replacement surgery and will serve as their main point of contact before, during and after surgery.

The role of a nurse navigator is to ensure that patients and their families are prepared, informed, and provided with the care and service needed at every point of care. The nurse navigator is available to answer questions, coordinate pre-admission testing, and evaluate patients’ individual needs to establish the best discharge and recovery plan. In addition, the nurse navigator plays a crucial role in facilitating the total joint replacement process for patients and in ensuring the seamless coordination of services throughout the continuum of care.
