  1. ResearchNurseRNCCRC

    University of Phoenix MSN program NUR590 Practicum

    The practicum is completely individual.

    Any clinical research nurses out there?

    I received my MSN through the University of Phoenix. They have a basic MSN program that is 39 credits without a specialty attached to it. Of course, you can then seek post-master's certification in various areas to make the MSN more specific to an area.

    Any clinical research nurses out there?

    I just completed my MSN, but without a "specialty" associated with it. It is my hope that my advanced degree coupled with my ACRP certification will show future employers that I'm a clinical research nurse specialist even though the ANCC doesn't recognize the CCRC as a nurse certification. Personally, as hard as that CCRC exam was, I think they should!
  4. I have been asked to fly in for an in-person interview with this company in the very near future. I currently live in the Midwest and would obviously move to the area if offered a job. I have a few questions: Does anyone have any experience as a nurse within this company (the clinical trials department, primarily)? Do you or a loved one have any experience with being a patient here? What makes the Albuquerque area better than the Northern Midwest (economy-wise primarily as weather is the obvious one)? What are some good areas around the city that are good for families with horses? If you moved to the area from the Midwest, are you glad you did, or do you miss certain things? What other research opportunities exist in the area? Thanks for reading!

    New grad/bad economy, bend over and take it?

    Only you know your financial situation. If you can handle waiting for something better, wait. It appears that the shift is an issue for you. With that being said, it is rare that a day shift would go to a new grad. I started out on evenings as a new grad. Perhaps you could focus your search on an evening shift position?

    RN Coder/Auditor

    I just got a call from this company, and am filling out the paperwork. So you love the work? How many hours were you "promised?" Are you getting the hours you expected? I'm about to take the leap and turn in my paperwork!

    Research RN Roll Call

    I'd love to teach online for clinical research. I have ten years experience in coordinating. I'll be completing my MSN Feb. 2011. Any tips how to get into that aspect of clinical research education?

    so how did things work out for you?

    University of Phoenix MSN program NUR590 Practicum

    I work in research as well. I struggled coming up with a research topic, so I chose an education avenue that had a specific focus on a disease. I felt that I had to fit into a specific mold topic-wise to please the instructor. Unfortunately, I have not enjoyed the practicum at all. I have been stressed with a lot of busy work on a topic that I have held minimal interest in. I start part 590B soon. I will be ready with all the completed objectives, but am more ready to have the whole experience behind me so that I can enjoy my family again.

    University of Phoenix MSN program NUR590 Practicum

    Thanks, but I have the syllabus and know what it says. I was asking for experiences and what to expect.
  11. ResearchNurseRNCCRC

    University of Phoenix MSN program NUR590 Practicum

    So, how did things turn out for you?
  12. ResearchNurseRNCCRC

    University of Phoenix MSN program NUR590 Practicum

    Yes, I am in my practicum now. It sure is taking a lot of time to complete. How many objectives (and how many sub-objectives) have you had to do? I have five objectives, with at least 4-5 sub-objectives to complete and it is taking me way longer than 60 hours to complete, in my opinion. It seems like it has turned into a way bigger project than I ever imagined. Any others feel the same? I am due to start 590B on Nov. 11th and I am scrambling to get all of the stuff done! How much does the journal weigh in terms of total points? What happens if you don't complete all of the objectives, or only partially complete all of the objectives? What if you mentor disappears and doesn't cooperate with you? What do you do or what did you do? PM me if necessary.

    Advanced degrees for researchers

    When you say CNL- do you mean clinical nurse leader?
  14. ResearchNurseRNCCRC

    Research Coordinators with CCRC or eligible for the CCRC?

    It's easier to pursue if your employer pesters you about it. At my company, it's EXPECTED.

    Research RN Roll Call

    My employer paid for my certification, plus a $1000 bonus for completing it. Unfortunately, they are not footing the bill for my Masters
