Our nursing educator’s toolkit receives RCN endorsement

A resource to help educators deliver genomics education to pre- and post-registration nurses has been recognised as fit for national nursing practice

The Genomics Education Programme is delighted to announce that our nursing educator’s toolkit has received endorsement from the Royal College of Nursing (RCN).

The toolkit – developed with stakeholders from nursing practice, policy and education – will help educators embed genomics into their pre- and post-registration teaching.

Who is this toolkit for?

The toolkit is designed for educators who want nursing-specific case studies to support genomics learning.

This case-study based resource demonstrates that genomics can be applied across a variety of fields and clinical situations within nursing practice.

What does endorsement mean?

The case studies have been individually mapped to the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s standards of proficiency for registered nurses. Annotations and prompts provide guidance for educators wishing to widen discussion.

Receiving the RCN’s endorsement is a welcome recognition of this work. It means our toolkit is considered fit for national nursing practice, as it conforms to the college’s quality criteria for professional standards. It will appear alongside other endorsed resources on the RCN website.

How can I learn more?

You can access the toolkit here and view our collection of case studies across adult and child nursing.

We aim to add further case studies in the future. We welcome new submissions to our toolbox.
