What is a Care Coordinator?
A Care Coordinator may be a Registered Nurse (RN) or an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP). Your care coordinator is a professional that helps to meet your needs in collaboration with your primary care provider. This can include information on your medical condition and information on VA and community services. Your care coordinator will make every effort to assess your needs and coordinate your care with your primary care provider or with other services available.
