I am an RN with 3 years experience (1.5 yrs in Oncology and 1.5 years in ER nursing). Since working in the ER, I have become very interested in Mental Health Nursing, in particular Clinical Research Nursing in this area. The thing is, I'm really not sure how to get a job as a Clinical Research Nurse. The few jobs that I do see advertised, want you to have research experience. I would be happy getting a job as a CRN in any area, to gain experience.
Does anyone have any tips regarding regarding how I can get a job as a Clinical Research Nurse, or whether there are any courses / certificate programs I can take, or books that I can read that may prepare me better with my search.
Thanks for listening! Any help is appreciated :)
