I am a new nurse, with a year (15 months to be exact
) of med/surg and psych experience. I have always wanted to get into research but I have no idea how!!! All positions I see require research experience. I have talked to a recruiter in the field, the only advice she offered me was to find an internship at a CRO. I have tried to look into becoming a CRA-also need experience. I have looked into CRC but the friends I have in the field have told me it is quite a paycut. I feel like I'm back at my new grad status again, when all the jobs require experience but you can't get a job so you can get experience!!
My current working conditions are less than superb and I want to try something new.
If anyone could please offer me some advice I would greatly appreciate it!
