I will be working as a Clinical Research Nurse Coordinator for a medical group in a few weeks. I would like to prepare for my job. Does anyone know of valuable professional or informational web sources that are applicable to this role? I would particularly like to know if there are any professional U.S. organizations specifically for people with this title. I will not be doing "nursing research", but rather assisting with medical research trials.

start learning and reading about the fda, gcp, ich, hhs. there are many regulations and resources available. i would begin with human subject protection, institutional review boards, cder and us code title 21 and the public health service act title 42. attached are some links i hope you will find useful. the physicians and sponsors you work with will appreciate your research and preparation.
clinicaltrials.gov - information on clinical trials and human research studies: glossary
public health service act
guidance for institutional review boards and clinical investigators

hhs - office for human research protections
the cder handbook
