Genetic Nursing Officially Recognized in Japan - Congratulations to JNA!
This is an exciting announcement from our ISONG colleagues in Japan about the initiation of genetic nursing being officially recognized as an advance practice nursing specialty in Japan.
"We, members of the Japanese Society of Genetics nursing are pleased to share with our ISONG colleagues that on November 30th, 2016 the Japanese Nursing Association announced “Genetic Nursing” as a new field of advance practice nursing in Japan! A certification exam will be put into effect next year. The Japanese Society of Genetic Nursing was instrumental in the creation of "Certified Nurse Specialist in Genetic Nursing " and will lead efforts to develop and support this new role for nurses in Japan. We would like to thank ISONG members for their many years of support and encouragement, and we look forward to your continued support."
