Pharmaceutical Nurse Consultant?


Specializes in Critical Care.

I have an interview for a pharmaceutical company as a nurse consultant. From what I understand I will be on the phone the majority of the day and be responsible for documenting adverse drug reactions as well as product complaints. I have been searching these forums like crazy trying to find anyone with this experience. Has anyone ever done this before? I am coming from bedside in critical care to this, because I need a change and I am frankly burnt out.....pros/cons of this new field.

Thanks in advance!:)

Wow! Sounds very interesting. There is a huge and growing emphasis on patient safety. It is refreshing to see that a pharma is willing to expend resources in this direction.

If you get the job, let us know what it's like.

No experience but kind of sounds like a dream job(might make you hesitant to take any drugs though!) let us know how it is.

Hi! Just curious to know if you ever took the consultant job? I am thinking about applying for the same type of job. I've been working in outpatient infusion and before that med/surg/oncology nursing so this is completely new. Let me knowí ½í¸ƒ
