Advances in genetic and genomic research, combined with the rapid development of new technologies, have reshaped our understanding of health and disease processes, generating what have collectively become known as "omics" sciences. These sciences are now an integral part of health care delivery, with nurses and nurse scientists at the forefront, implementing and adapting genomic technologies in the clinical setting while advancing knowledge in these areas. With the increasing focus on precision medicine and health care, integrating genetic and genomic knowledge has become an essential competency in nursing care, research, and education, as it enables nurses to collaborate effectively with patients in improving their health and well-being.
