Meet Michele Busshart

Michele Busshart RN, BSN, OCN, is the Nurse Manager of the Adult Oncology Clinic and Nurse Navigator Program at the N.C. Cancer Hospital.

Michele oversees a busy Oncology Clinic serving over 100,000 patient visits a year. The nursing clinic staff is comprised of 20 members and 16 Nurse Navigators. People from all over the state with all types of cancers come to receive care from one or more of the almost 80 providers in the clinic.

The Nurse Navigators under Michele's direction assist  patients through their cancer journey by coordinating complex care at our institution or other institutions, offering emotional support, providing access to community resources, and helping them on their way to recovery.

"I enjoy working at the NC Cancer Hospital because I have the opportunity to provide nursing care to people from all walks of life," said Michele. "As a Nurse Manager, I have the ability to provide a service from not only a nursing standpoint, but from a management/administrative level. The staff in clinic as a whole can make changes and strive to provide the best care possible. Senior leadership at UNC Hospitals provides us with the support needed to promote positive change."

Outside of the clinic, Michele cherishes the time she spends with friends and family.
