Journal of Nursing Scholarship Genomic Nursing Webinar Series


Come listen to webinars presented by nursing and medical expert authors of manuscripts published in the Journal of Nursing Scholarship 2013 Genomics Special Issue. Genomics applications in healthcare are increasingly relevant to care delivery by all healthcare professionals, including nurses who practice in every healthcare setting.

The webinars cover diverse topics influencing care across the life and health continuum and are intended for preparing both practicing and academic nursing. The purpose of each webinar is for the author(s) to share their genomic knowledge of common health conditions with relevance for nursing practice and services and respond to nurses' questions about content provided.

Webinars were recorded and posted here and on GenomeTV, NHGRI's YouTube channel.
