Genomic Knowledge Matrix for Nursing Scientists

The Genomic Nursing Science Education Workgroup recognizes that Omic nursing science varies widely based on the individual investigator, the nature of the research, and the role a scientist plays on the research team. As such, the Genomic Knowledge Matrix occurs on a knowledge continuum developed from Blooms Taxonomy and Webb’s Depth of Knowledge1, 2. The four knowledge levels include Basic, Intermediate, Proficient, and Applied. See a summary by viewing the Genomic Knowledge Continuum.

This section provides details of the key knowledge elements considered essential for integrating Omics into research.

The key concepts from the following topics comprise essential knowledge elements necessary to integrate Omic science into nursing research:
