We are thrilled to offer a day of Pre-Congress Sessions this year! Join us on Thursday, November 7th!
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM - Session A
Advances in genetics and genomics are revolutionizing our understanding of health and illness, and nurses are at the forefront of implementing these advances. Furthering the genetics/genomics education of nurses plays a significant role in the challenge of integrating genetics and genomics into clinical care. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce key genetic/genomic concepts, terminology, and basic principles to new learners, non-genetics nurses, or as a refresher for experienced clinicians.
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM - Session B
NPCC - Credentialing Professional Nurses in Genetic/Genomic Practice
Designed for all nurses interested in credentialing requirements, the purpose of this workshop is to inform and give direction about the value, purpose, and process for credentialing the genetic/genomic nurse professional. The workshop will introduce the new portfolio credentialing platform and the criteria necessary for credentialing baccalaureate (CGN) and advanced practice nurses (ACGN).

Teaching Genomics for Meaningful Learning
The purpose of this workshop is to provide nursing educators with a framework and strategies for teaching genomics to nursing students. The workshop is applicable for faculty, graduate students, or teaching assistants who teach designated genomics courses or who have a role in integrated approaches to genomic education for nurses. Successful translation of genome science to improve health outcomes requires a nursing workforce prepared to deliver and explain genetic information and interventions.

1:00 PM - 4:00 PM - Session D
The expansion of Genetic/Genomic screening programs necessitates continued examination of the ethical aspects and unforeseen consequences of these expansions. Central to the concept of Genomics care is the tenant of exploring the impact on family experiences and family dynamics. This presentation will examine a Newborn Screening Program (NSP) expansion, ethical considerations and concepts of genomic care, the impact on family experiences, and approaches to program modification to minimize unintentional harm.
