Genetic counseling

This discussion asks you look at the role of the family health nurse in a genetic counseling scenario. Imagine that you are a family health nurse, and today in your office you will be seeing a married couple who are both carriers for a genetic disorder (for example, sickle cell, cystic fibrosis, or Huntington’s disease). This couple would like to have children, but since they are both carriers for a genetic disorder, they are seeking your advice on what they should do before they attempt to start a family.

Your initial post must be posted before you can view and respond to colleagues, must contain minimum of two (2) references, in addition to examples from your personal experiences to augment the topic. The goal is to make your post interesting and engaging so others will want to read/respond to it. Synthesize and summarize from your resources in order to avoid the use of direct quotes, which can often be dry and boring. No direct quotes are allowed in the discussion board posts.

Students will be able to look at the role of the family health nurse in a genetic counseling scenario.
