    Been there, done that. I found out I was pregnant after I applied to nursing school. Started nursing school at about 6.5 months. I had tons of support though. We moved in with my parents. I had both parents, an aunt, a husband, my brother and my 3 year old son for help. It was hard but it can be done, with a 3.1 GPA. I worked full time also. . Sometimes you may have to choose between a shower or sleep. Just being honest. It was hard. But it can be done.

    Thank you so much for responding. I've always wanted "cure cancer", work on a research team that did amazing things, that is why I went into nursing. But it looks like I just don't know enough about how to be a research nurse or research scientist, I don't even know where to begin. I don't know any research nurses, except those that do research on the best nursing practices based on evidence (which is not what I want or wanted.) I think I just want to make a difference and I just got accepted into a FNP program so I will try and save the world this way. Thanks again.

    I need some insight on Covance. I have always wanted to be a research nurse and I have a phone interview coming up. What are the hours like? Holidays? What is the starting salary? I don't know anything except I want to be a research nurse for a pharmaceutical company. Please help!

    not really an issue anymore, only in nursing school. I've seen many nurses with many tattoos, even sleeves. My preceptor got a tattoo almost every week when I first started.

    Hello everyone. I am currently working bedside but have always wanted to do research. I have a BSN and chemistry degree and would love to find out HOW TO GET A JOB WITH NO EXPERIENCE. Every job always ask for at least 1 year of clinical research experience but it is not like bedside where you can get a internship/residency. Please help I'm in DFW.

    I think we are all lost..who knows what to do? My recruiter just said we'll be in touch. I guess just have a copy of your SS card. I don't know about uniforms yet or anything like that.

    I hate that I got excited when I received the first email, but it's been a week and nothing. Then I got it again for the other 2 applications I put in. So I don't know if everyone gets that email but I've received 3 with no calls.

    It's kinda getting frustrating and stressful. I guess it is still kind of early. But neway, wish everyone good luck.

    I'm Still waiting...however, I sat in on an interview yesterday and have examples of how you have overcome obstacles, errors, frustration, and lazy coworkers. what you would do if a patient came in with chest pains, worst headache ever, things like that.
