Nginx cache configuration for logged-in WordPress users?

I have a site where, with caching enabled, Nginx is causing problems with user sessions. If logged in and attempting to navigate to another page that was previously cached, it logs them out and takes them to a login screen or directs them to a cached, non-logged-in version of the page. With caching disabled, everything works as expected.

Should this be the case? Is there any documentation to help with this configuration? Can someone provide me a working example of a configuration they are using to have this working as expected?

I saw this document as well:

That seems to suggest an Apache configuration. Would it be better handled there than Nginx? What kind of Apache configuration would I need to set up?
