ISONG is pleased to announce that the Journal of Biological Research for Nursing (BRN) has published its special March 2018 issue focused on Genetics and Genomics. Thank you to Drs. Wendy Henderson and Gia Mudd Martin who served as guest editors for the special issue and to the many additional ISONG members who submitted articles. We are so grateful to BRN for this collaborative opportunity.
Again, we are saluting ISONG members for helping to raise visibility of genetics and genomics nursing research through this special issue.
Congratulations to ISONG members Beth Pestka and Karen Zanni who contributed to the newly published book " Health Policy and Advanced Practice Nursing, Second Edition." This book offers a wealth of information about the role of all types of Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs), including NPs, CNSs, CNMs, and CRNAs, in influencing the development and application of health care policy in a wide range of specialties.
Focus is on developing policy that advocates for vulnerable populations and discusses how the incorporation of interprofessional education has changed, and will continue to alter, health policy in the United States and internationally. This "call to action" is designed for courses enrolling students from a variety of APRN trajectories and includes content on how and why APRNs can and should influence policy development.
Congratulations to ISONG member Ann Maradiegue on the newly published book, "Genetics and Genomics in Nursing Guidelines for Conducting a Risk Assessment"
Ann H. Maradiegue, PhD, MSN, FNP, FAANP, is a nurse practitioner/consultant. She has more than 43 years of experience as a registered nurse and 20 years of experience as a nurse practitioner. Dr. Maradiegue has extensive training in the area of genetics/genomics.
The purpose of the book is to provide a quick and easy format to study the basic elements and steps required for risk assessment. The book is geared toward APRNs, particularly NPs and midwives who provide assessment, diagnosis, and management of care in clinical settings.
This book is divided into 12 chapters, with a wide range of topics to assist APRNs in the risk assessment process. Each chapter includes a brief introduction to the topic, objectives, specific content related to the topic, online resources, and "Info Boxes" that are all integral to the chapter's focus.
Congratulations to Alice Kerber and Nancy Ledbetter, along with many additional ISONG members who contributed chapters, edited, and proofread the 2nd edition of the Scope and Standards. We thank them all for their contributions and hard work on behalf of the entire Genetics Nursing profession!
Completely updated by genetics/genomics nurses for genetics/genomics nurses. The first best resource for the RN or APRN genetics/genomics nurse at any level and in any setting. Essential for all involved in this nursing practice specialty now and throughout this decade.

Mastering Pharmacogenomics: A Nurse’s Handbook for Success 1st Edition
Pharmacogenomics, the study of the role of genetics in drug response, has developed into a critical new area in battling disease and improving outcomes. As our knowledge of the human genome grows, and with the advent of next-generation sequencing technologies, the role of genetic research is evolving to guide therapy and prevent many diseases and mitigate side-effects of current treatments. As a pivotal member of the healthcare team, nurses must acquire competency in pharmacogenomics to deliver optimal patient care in the 21st century. Mastering Pharmacogenomics provides nursing professionals with a foundational knowledge of humanacogenomics Book
