    Free online course: Genomic Competencies for Nurses from Theory to Application: An Online Course

    Drs. Rebecca Kronk and Mihaela-Rita Mihailescu, Duquesne University, recently received a 5-year grant through the National Human Genome Research Institute of the National Institutes of Health (Award Number R25HG011228) to assist in the creation of a self-paced, free, online course entitled Genomic Competencies for Nurses from Theory to Application: An Online Course. This course is designed to improve the knowledge of genetics for Doctoral level (PhD; DNP) students, faculty and/or practicing nurses to improve patient health care outcomes with particular focus on individuals from underrepresented groups. No prior genetics experience is required.

    The next course will launch in January 2023.
