Content & Learning Experience:
“This is a great course to introduce you to how to begin to integrate genetics and genomics into nursing practice.”
“A concise, densely packed course allowing health professionals to survey the landscape of genomics utilizing activities that are fun, relevant and designed to spark more interest in the subject.”
“An excellent overview of the basics of inheritance and the role of the nurse as case finder and referral agent”
“Good course to help reduce ‘fear’ of genetics. Has applicability to any area of practice.”
“The course is very practical and down to earth, meaning that we apply genetic knowledge to everyday cases and also the resources are very useful and accessible.”
“It was user friendly and a good way to learn as long as you are disciplined and open to doing a course on-line. I still probably prefer a class, but that isn’t feasible for me right now, so I would say it is a good alternative.”
“…an excellent way to learn and earn contact hours. I have already recommended this course to others.”
“This web-based format with interactive self-learning modules/sessions and multiple resources helped to apply concepts to any area of nursing practice.”
