Laurie Bettridge, RN, BSN, OCN
Laurie Bettridge, RN, BSN, OCN, is a registered nurse with additional certification in oncology nursing and chemotherapy/biotherapy.
Laurie serves as a passionate patient advocate through all stages of the cancer journey, from initial diagnosis through treatment, follow-up and survivorship. Acting as a central point of contact for patients, families and the health care team, Laurie provides support, education and coordination of care. She also acts as liaison to additional services such as counseling, cancer nutrition, social work, financial assistance and clinical trial eligibility.
Laurie stays current with new trends and therapies in cancer care, and holds a special interest in inheritable cancer syndromes and cancer genetics. Her goal is to provide the kind of assistance a close family member would provide, if they were trained in medicine. Most people do not have this, and it is her privilege to try to fill the gap as patients navigate the complicated landscape of the medical system.
