The translation of genetics/genomics to clinical care has implications for nurses. The Essential Nursing Competencies and Curricula Guidelines for Genetics and Genomics, established by consensus, apply to all registered nurses. Learning outcomes and clinical practice indicators have been developed to provide additional guidance. The Essentials Advisory Group (EAG) established a team to establish the Outcome Indicators. A draft was developed based on published peer-reviewed documents and syllabi. The draft underwent three layers of review: (a) critique by the EAG; (b) review by representatives at a Genetics/Genomics Toolkit for Faculty meeting; and (c) review by workshop attendees of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing's baccalaureate and master's education conferences, followed by EAG's final approval. Outcome Indicators clarify specific knowledge areas and suggest clinical performance indicators for each competency. They provide the foundation to establish a competency-based education repository with outcome indicator mapping matrixes for genetic/genomic education resources. A gap analysis of education resources identified resource deficits, and online unfolding case studies were developed. Outcome Indicators assist the academic and continuing education nurse community to prepare the nursing workforce in genetics/genomics and provide a platform from which to build tools needed to achieve this goal.
