whole-genome sequencing, NICU, nurses, communicating test results




The grant I received through the Office of Research and Creative Activities was helpful in supporting this research project. My mentor and I started work on the project early in the year by analyzing the data we had gathered. In 2017, I attended a nursing conference hosted by the National Association of Neonatal Nurses, which is where we surveyed nearly 200 NICU nurses about their understanding of whole-genome sequencing. This survey included both qualitative and quantitative questions. My mentor guided me through the process of interpreting and organizing the qualitative data, which we divided into several subsets within each question.
