Join us for this informative two-part series webinar on Genomics Nursing Practice. Genetic and genomic scientific advances are redefining our understanding of health and illness, necessitating a concomitant shift in graduate nursing education and practice.

Nurses prepared at the master's and doctoral levels are at the interface of translating these genetic and genomic advances into patient care yet, many nurses do not understand the basic language of genomics. Content experts Kathleen Calzone, PhD, RN, APNG, FAAN and Laurie Badzek, RN, MS, JD, Director of ANA Center for Ethics and Human Rights, will help nurses develop a basic understanding of genomics and provide competent patient-oriented care.
