Talking about competency
A guide was developed by the American Nurses' Association in 2002 entitled "ESSENTIALS OF GENETIC AND GENOMIC NURSING: COMPETENCIES, CURRICULA GUIDELINES, AND OUTCOME INDICATORS". 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.
In 2013, De Sevo published an article "Competency of nurse educators in genetics/ genomics knowledge" in the Journal of Nursing Education and Practice, and is another useful read. Full text article here .
