    Notes: The pace of knowledge development related to genetics continues to progress exponentially. Knowledge gained through the Human Genome Project will have a profound impact on the practice of nursing, and the widespread integration of genetics into nursing education, clinical practice, and research will be essential. Many nurses continue to view genetic services as relegated to a specialist in a tertiary center and not relevant to their practice. This is certainly about to change. This article reviews the major implications of Human Genome Project for changing the landscape of health care and nursing, discusses several specific examples of genetic testing, and describes strategies under way to help prepare nurses to meet these new demands. Understanding new DNA-based genetic-testing technologies will be important for nurses as these tests become more available and nurses assist clients in the management of their genetic health. Nurses must become active participants in embracing the challenges and opportunities related to this genetic revolution, which over the next 5 to 10 years will reach nurses in every specialty and in every practice setting.
