Alternatives to pharmaceutical sales?

  1. I am wondering if Pharmaceutical companies hire BSN's or MSN's for jobs other than medical sales.

    Anyone happen to know?

    I currently work in product/patient safety in a clinical research organization. I process serious adverse event reports from clinical trials. Those positions are great for nurses. Pharmas also hire for those positions. but usually only after you have several years experience.

    Look into 'safety' jobs at companies like Parexel, PPD, Quintiles,etc. If you search on for 'safety' you should be able to find some.

    You could also look into clinical research monitoring positions at CRO (clinical research organization)-those jobs do require a great deal of travel.

    PM me if you would like.
