I am a nurse with 5 years of experience, 4 years in ortho and one in dialysis. I am interested in research and I am currently enrolled in a MSN program for clinical trails research at Drexel. I would like to know if there is any way to break in to clinical trails, before I complete my degree. Would I be able to transition to a position as a research coordinator? All of the job descriptions for research coordinators in the phildelphia area require some reseach experience. I am not sure how I can get expereince if no one will hire me. Any advice would be appreciated.
