Genetics for Nurses is written with the intention of making it easy for students of nursing and allied health sciences to understand and apply the subject in their professional practice. Every living entity copies its genetic and molecular instruction on its genes and passes on the information to its offspring. At the same time there are differences which creep in among the siblings, children, etc. There are some genetic bases for occurrence of certain diseases. The study of all these is included in the subject of genetics. Genetic counselling is the main area where a nurse or healthcare professional can function effectively. The book will provide them a firm knowledge base to learn the basics and also apply them in their professions for the benefit of the patients in particular and society in general.
