And I've been looking at nursing roles that satisfy those likes.
I know nursing faculty do plenty of research, especially the PhD types, and they're in great need. But I also know they're not paid well, which could be a problem.
I've also heard that a CNS does research as well. I was wondering, how much of their job is research?

llg might do some - if she doesn't answer, you might want to PM her - she is a great resource for the CNS role.
- Aug 22, '08 by elkparkThat's one of those things you can decide and work out for yourself. There are plenty of CNSs who never think about doing research again once they've finished their graduate programs, and there are CNSs who are very heavily involved in research. Participating in research is certainly a component of the CNS role, and, if that is one's interest, one could seek out employment opportunities that would focus on research.
