The mission of GNCC is to enhance professional practice care for peoples' genetic health through genetic nursing credentials.
GENETIC NURSING CREDENTIALING COMMISSION
The Genetic Nurses Credentialing Commission (GNCC) and the International Society of Nurses in Genetics (ISONG) are thrilled to announce that the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) will be assuming the role of credentialing genetic nurses. The GNCC process will end effective December 2013 with the ANCC process becoming effective in late 2014. All currently credentialed nurses will remain fully credentialed through the expiration date on their credentail. ISONG members will be integral in maintaining the standards of genetic nurse credentialing by working directly with ANCC through the current transition and ongoing review of the genetic nurse credentialing processes. Thank you to all of the volunteers and members of GNCC and ISONG who created and maintained our unique portfolio process which has since become the model for other specialty credentials.
