I have been looking at different master's programs; some offer research and even fewer offer clinical trials. I am specifically interested in clinical trials. Does anyone have suggestions regarding which type of program? Why?
I have seen research classes at the BSN and the MSN level and both do not really do a good job at preparing anyone for being in research. I am interested as well in conducting clinical research. I am looking at the BSN to PhD in nursing programs such as UAB and Emory from where I have looked so far.
Arizona State University has a Master's program in Clinical Research Administration that can be done mostly online. I think there are times when you may need to travel to the campus, but they are not very often.
As mentioned above, you would be over-credentialed as an entry-level coordinator with an MS. It might be better to see if your community college has a clinical research certificate program.
