Interactions between genetic and environmental factors have been implicated in a widening range of health problems. Nurses investigating these problems need a strong foundation in genetics in order to understand the multifactorial basis of disease. The genetics information explosion is reflected in a Medline search on "genetics" finding over a million (1,031,132) publications on genetics since 1986 with nearly half (408, 676) of them occurring between 1996 and2000. The volume of available literature in genetics makes nurses realize the importance of understanding the genetic information to apply to their teaching, practice and more importantly now their research. A needs assessment survey was distributed to a nation-wide sample of 840 advanced practice nurses and college of nursing alumni. Of the 294 respondents, 79% were very or somewhat interested in learning about genetics, 65% were willing to travel for genetics education and 80% were interested in participating in an online education program. The sample included 88% Caucasians with 3.3 % African American, 1.7% Hispanics and 4% Asians. This presentation will discuss the needs assessment and learning opportunities available in genetics for nurses. These opportunities will include findings from a faculty development grant and faculty participation in the National Institute of Nursing Research Summer Genetics Institute. Mechanisms designed to assist nurse researchers to incorporate genetic principles and markers into their investigations will also be presented. Knowledge and skills in genetics, genomics, and proteomics will provide a clearer understanding of the interactions between genes and environment throughout the range of phenomena under nurse-led investigations.
