Genetic Nursing

genetics nurse cares for patients who are at risk for, or are affected by, a genetic disease or condition. They provide direct patient care, perform and analyze genetics risk assessments and educate patients and families on their risk profiles for various genetic conditions and how this risk may impact their ongoing health management. A genetic nurse can work in a variety of settings, including specialty genetics clinics where gene-based diagnoses and therapies are offered, prenatal and reproductive specialty centers, hospitals, cancer centers, and specialty medical practices. Many genetics nurses work in a particular sub-specialty of medicine where genetics play an important role, such as obstetrics and reproduction, oncology, mental health and pediatrics.
