Genetics is an important field of study for every health care professional to understand. Moreover, because nurses are the greatest client advocates and interact the most with individuals throughout their hospital stays, they therefore must know how to translate genetic tests. Medical-surgical nurses treat a variety of patients, who each can have numerous diseases and health problems. Nurses who work in a medical surgical unit must understand the great effect that a client’s genes have on their health and well-being and must take genetics into consideration throughout the care and treatment of each client (Ignatavicius, 2014).
