“Genetic and genomic science is redefining the understanding of the continuum of human health and illness. Therefore, recognition of genomics as a central science for health professional knowledge is essential. The public will increasingly expect that the registered nurse (RN) will use genetic and genomic information and technology when providing care” (American Nurses Association [ANA] & International Society of Nurses in Genetics [ISONG], 2007, page 7). Clinical, academic and research practice increasingly includes concepts that are based in genetics and genomics. All RNs, regardless of level of education, work setting or role, must be able to deliver competent genetic- and genomic-focused care (Consensus Panel on Genetic/Genomic Nursing Competencies, 2006). The purpose of this module is to provide the perinatal nurse with basic knowledge of and information about genetics and genomics to incorporate into nursing practice.
