Genetics and Genomics Content in Nursing Education: A National Imperative

Laurie Connors, DNP, RN, APNG, FNP-BC, AGN-BC
Assistant Professor

Vanderbilt University School of Nursing

Congratulations to ISONG Member Dr. Laurie Connors from Vanderbilt University School of Nursing who along with a colleague prepared a guest editorial on "Genetics and Genomics Content in Nursing Education: A National Imperative." Though genetic competencies have been embedded in AACN's Essentials documents, many nursing programs lack foundational content in the curricula. The authors call for academic nursing leaders to strengthen student preparation in the genetic and molecular basis of disease to better meet population health needs. 

Journal of Biological Research for Nursing (BRN) has published its special March 2018 issue focused on Genetics and Genomics

ISONG is pleased to announce that the Journal of Biological Research for Nursing (BRN) has published its special March 2018 issue focused on Genetics and Genomics.  Thank you to Drs. Wendy Henderson and Gia Mudd Martin who served as guest editors for the special issue and to the many additional ISONG members who submitted articles.  We are so grateful to BRN for this collaborative opportunity. ISONG members please contact for the link.  

Genetic and genomic discoveries impact all areas of healthcare practice, from providing insight into new treatments to supporting disease-prevention strategies to guiding development of personalized health interventions. Nursing research has made, and will continue to make, significant contributions to the growing body of evidence that informs our understanding of the role of genes and genomics in health and illness. From bench to bedside to population health, nursing research is at the forefront of translating basic science into clinical and community applications.

The goal of this special issue is to disseminate cutting-edge findings of genetic and genomic research that have the potential to impact nursing practice and to improve health outcomes across the spectrum of healthcare practice. 

Again, we are saluting ISONG members for helping to raise visibility of genetics and genomics nursing research through this special issue.
