The Genetics Education Program for Nurses (GEPN) independent self-paced modules are designed to promote just-in-time learning. The learner does not need to use the modules in any particular sequence; rather, the learner is encouraged to use any number of modules in the sequence that best meets his or her continuing education needs.

Each module is consistent with the following:

  • International Society of Nurses in Genetics (ISONG) Statement on the Scope and Standards of Genetics Clinical Nursing Practice
  • National Coalition for Health Professional Education in Genetics (NCHPEG) core competencies for all health professionals
  • Essential Nursing Competencies and Curricula Guidelines for Genetics and Genomics.
