What it Takes to Be a Genetics Nurse
Genetics nurses tend to patients who are susceptible to, or who have already contracted, medical or psychiatric health disorders related to their genetic makeup. Genetics nurses work with patients and their families to evaluate hereditary and non-hereditary influences on the patient’s condition. They care for the patients of genetic diseases and support genetics physicians. Genetic nurses also support the patient’s family to educate them about the condition and discuss genetic risk factors.
