Education is a pillar of ISONG and is compromised of:
The Education Committee facilitates genetic/genomic opportunities and support for continuing education and advancements for all professional nurses. These resources include webinars and other programs to share current knowledge and future trends of genetics/genomics for best practices in education.
We invite ISONG members to go to the Committee webpage to contact the Co-Chairs if you'd like to become more involved. We'd love to hear your suggestions!
