Canned tuna has less mercury than other fish like swordfish. Nonetheless, that's not nutritional. But I could be wrong. I'm just going based on what my doc said.

I was told by my wic nutritionist that two cans a week is recommended because of the nutritional value.

2 cans a week is excessive. No more than 2 cans in a month is what my doctor said. But once every two weeks is fine. Like in hamburger helper, or by itself or in a sandwich or salad.
