Purpose/Aim: To examine the types of articles focused on genetics that have been published in Biological Research for Nursing over the past 10 years. Rationale/Conceptual Basis/Background: Over the past decade, remarkable advancements have been made in the area of genetics. When this work first took off in the 1990s, doubts were expressed about the role nursing could play in genetics. Methods: Past issues of Biological Research for Nursing were reviewed and articles related to genetics were summarized. These articles were then classified into five broad categories: nursing role, animal study, review, methods, and human study. Results: Twenty-one articles were identified categorized into the five categories; nursing role (n=5), animal study (n=2), review (n=5), methods (n=5), and human study (n=4). The journal volume of each article by category is as follows: nursing role (1, 3, 3, 3, 9), animal study (2, 3), review (4, 6, 6, 8), methods (5, 8, 9, 9), and human study (3, 9, 9, 10, 10). The evolution of nursing's role in genetics and genetic research can be seen by examining these articles and the sequence of their publication. Ten years ago, nurses were writing about what their role in genetics might be. Early on, two studies were done using animal models of disease, genetic obesity and genetic disorders of iron metabolism; however, these two experimental studies were not focusing on genetics directly. More recent volumes show a movement toward review articles and then to methodological papers and finally to those involving human genetics. Implications: Nursing's role in genetics research has evolved over the past ten years. We propose that this progression is logical in that nurse scientists must first review the literature and then compare and contrast methodologies before being able to engage in clinical research studies. This analysis demonstrates the movement of nurses into the mainstream of genetic research.
