    I've applied for a research coordinator job and pretty much have it in the bag. I'm worried about salary/ I did a salary search and with a Master's degree and 3 certifications (in the specialty I'll be researching) the salary range was $62,700 to 70,800.
    Does this sound reasonable? Thius is in the Mid west. Would any of you be willing to give me a range of what you think an acceptable wage would be???? THANKS!!!

    Hope you're still out there..that was a pretty old post...I am applying for a CRC position in central Tx. I anticipate I will work with numerous docs on various research projects. I'm excited and a little scared...some of these posts are talking about lots of stress...I'm pretty compulsive and enjoy tedious things, but I don't care much for stress!!!! any advice in this arena???

    thanks for the advice...I'm hoping to keep my same pay...the place I work at is not very competitive in the nursing job market....topkat

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a new grad RN, but have been working in pharmaceuticals/biotech for the past 7 years. I recently got hired on a tele/transplant unit but I have shoulder impingement syndrome, so my start date has been put on hold. My doctor cleared me to work recently, but now I'm having another flare-up of the tendonitis. I've been going to PT 1-2x/week for the past 4 months.

    I still am working at my current job with a pharmaceutical company, and there's a position open for a CRA I that I'm considering, mostly because I'm afraid that I won't be able to do my job as a hospital nurse.

    So, I'm wondering, is there anyone here who went straight into clinical research without having to work on the unit or floor? Or, if you have any advice for a nurse in the "injured reserve" I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks everyone!

    I am a clinical research coordinator for the University of Florida. I work in the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases and Immunology. Specifically, I am currently assigned to one of the largest Pediatric HIV/AIDS protocols funded by the NIH. I really love my job and would enjoy hearing more from the other research nurse coordinators.[/quote]

    I work in Oncology research. I handle a variety of trials including melanoma, prostate, head & neck, pancreatic, etc. It's exciting to see what's on the horizon for the treatment of melanoma. It's all about immunotherapy! I absolutely love what I do. :heartbeat
