- Aug 29, '11 by OncologyRN23I have recently come into a new position at my hospital as a oncology clinical trial nurse coordinator. Can anyone tell me what the difference is between a clinical trial coordinator and a clinical research coordinator?

- Aug 29, '11 by CrunchRNUsually clinical trials involve using a drug or device and are funded by the pharmaceutical industry verses clinical research which usually relates to investigator initiated studies that evaluate certain treatment or therapies or risk factors etc........
- Aug 29, '11 by anc33Same thing. Titles differ even within organizations. My job title is RN Spec, working title is Clinical Research Coordinator. I have friends in different departments that do the same thing who are Research Nurses, Clinical Trials Nurses or Clinical Trials Coordinators.
