The aims of this project were to (1) assess nurse faculty members' knowledge of and confidence in teaching genetics/genomics to nursing students and (2) identify the needs of faculty members to inform a faculty development initiative. Significant knowledge gaps were noted, and more than 50% of respondents indicated that they lacked confidence in teaching genetics/genomics. Strategies to address this problem included identifying champions of genetics/genomics education, use of an educational template, and threading genetics/genomics throughout the curriculum.
