Hi. I'm new here. Can someone tell me how much clinical experience is needed prior to becoming a research nurse? I am a 41 year old new grad BSN. I have been working as a Visiting Nurse (Palliative Care) for 3 months but I am not happy with my current job. I think research sounds like a perfect fit but I'm wondering if it would be possible for me at this point. I'm really not happy with the clinical aspect of nursing and would like to get away from it but I feel so limited and I don't want the degree that I worked so hard for to be a waste.
Thanks in advance for any advise.
