Completely updated by genetics/genomics nurses for genetics/genomics nurses.The first best resource for the RN or APRN genetics/genomics nurse at any level and in any setting. Essential for all involved in this nursing practice specialty now and throughout this decade.

A workgroup of genetics/genomics nurse experts, convened by ISONG and ANA, completely updated and expanded the previous edition. With input from nurses nationwide, their revision addressed and incorporated ongoing and anticipated changes in genetics/genomics nursing as well as in nursing and health care in general.

The revised scope of genetics/genomics nursing practice—the who, what, where, when, why, and how of practice—sets the context for understanding and using the standards: the underlying assumptions, characteristics, environments and settings, education and training requirements, key issues and trends, and ethical and conceptual bases of genetics/genomics nursing.

The updated 16 standards frame any evaluation of the outcomes and goals of, and measure the accountabilities for, general, graduate-level prepared, and advanced practice genetics/genomics nurses. By meeting each standard's competencies, these nurses can demonstrate compliance with that standard.

A foundational volume primarily for those directly involved with genetics/genomics nursing practice, education, and research, other nurses and allied healthcare providers, researchers, and scholars will find value in its content.
