Genetics is the DNA of an organism or a genome. And a genome is an organism (Journal of Genomics & Gene Study, 2018). Nurses have had the opportunity to play a huge role in genetics and genomics. Advance practice nurses will take a holistic approach in genetics and genomics. Unfortunately, there will be many times when nurses are very busy and may not be able to get to all her patients in an acceptable time frame. Human genome has made remarkable process throughout the years (Dale, 2008). Genome has opened up many opportunities and has helped the medical professionals to have a better education on many of the illnesses we live with today such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease just mention a few common illnesses. Nurses work one on one with patient who may be in the process of having genetic and genomic therapy (Dale, 2008). Patient will need education when making decisions concerning genetic and genomic therapy (Dale, 2008). Advance practice nurses can provide the support and guidance to patients and they will answering questions, providing literature on the topics and being there for patients for emotional support when difficult decisions arise. Many nursing organizations support genetic and genome. The American Nurses Association (ANA) was the first to support genetics and genome by publishing an article on genetics (Montgomery, 2017). This is a great opportunity because it gives nurses great, reliable resources!!

Subscribe The main difference between genomics and genetics is that genetics scrutinizes the functioning and composition of the single gene where as genomics addresses all genes and their inter relationships in order to identify their combined influence on the growth and development of the organism (WHO definitions of genetics and genomics, 2018). So basically genetics deals with how one trait can be passed along from a parent to a child while the study of genomics deals with the actually analysis of the genome. Since nurses are the forefront of the care for the patients, they can definitely get involved in policy making in the field of genomics. Genetic research is now leading to a better understanding of the genetic components of common diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, and stroke, and creating new, gene-based technologies for screening, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of both rare and common diseases (Halsey, 2008). As a result of this research, nurses will participate fully in genetic-based and genomic-based practice activities such as collecting family history, obtaining informed consent for genetic testing, and administering gene-based therapies (Halsey, 2008). Genetics nurses work with individuals that are at risk of developing or already suffering from genetic disorders and diseases. These nurses may perform genetics screenings, treat symptoms associated with these diseases, and help individuals and their loved ones deal with these diseases. Another way nurses will be involved is by they will need to be familiar with the nature and sources of genetic information so that they can assure privacy and confidentiality for their patients. They will need to help patients make tough decisions. One organization that is open to nurses in the field of genetics is the International Society of Nurses in Genetics. Their vision is caring for people’s genetic and genomic health throughout the lifespan and across the continuum of health and disease, and part of their mission involves serving both the nursing profession and the public (Mission/Vision, 2018). Another organization a genetic nurse can get involved is Genetic Alliance. ReferencesHalsey, D. (2008). Genetic and Genomic Healthcare: Ethical Issues of Importance to Nurse.
