Within their biology section they have three courses which would be of interest as an introduction to this topic. Classical and molecular genetics, DNA as genetic material and gene regulation. We have embedded a video as an example, and recommend that you visit their website for more background and information about the topic.
Talking about competency
The American Nurses' Association developed a guide "ESSENTIALS OF GENETIC AND GENOMIC NURSING: COMPETENCIES, CURRICULA GUIDELINES, AND OUTCOME INDICATORS" (2002). This guide provides a sound foundation to work from when starting your journey on understanding why genomics and genetics are fundamental to health for all. Read the guide here.
Kathleen A. Calzone et.al concluded that 'Outcome Indicators assist the academic and continuing education nurse community to prepare the nursing workforce in genetics/genomics and provide a platform from which to build tools needed to achieve this goal.' Full article here
In 2013, De Sevo published an article "Competency of nurse educators in genetics/ genomics knowledge", another useful read. Full text article here .
