    These are lots of indepth questions to answer but I'll do my best to answer the ones I can.
    Research nurses utilize the knowledge of others such as scientists, doctors and coworkers. When working with these coworkers you work as a team.research nurses assist investigators and patients in a supportive environment. They combine clinical expertise in nursing with an in-depth knowledge of the research project and are in the unique position of being the advocate for both the research subject and the principal investigator. research nurses not only need the skills to meet the needs of patients with complex care requirements, but also the skills to provide safe, accurate, efficient, and ethical care that is in compliance with federal and local research regulations. With the increasing complexity of clinical research, research nurses also need to be knowledgeable about and involved in all aspects of the research process.

    Hope this helps!

    I need to find a research nurse to ask a few basic questions, and to possibly interview a couple more times over the next month.
    This is for an EBP class in an accelerated program. I spent a number of hours yesterday contacting 20 people and have heard nothing back (and in an accelerated program those hours are sorely missed!) I would greatly appreciate any help!!

    The four questions due Tuesday are:

    1. How did you get interested in your topic?
    2. How do you project application of your work to EBP?
    3. What are your hopes for the study?
    4. What is the greatest challenge in conducting the study?

    If you could just answer these that would be awesome

    Thank you!!!
