    Help getting into research nursing...

    You don't need research experience to be a research nurse. You need skills such as being detail oriented, good with patients, able to draw blood, and want to advance medicine. The rest of the job can be learned! You just have to find the right position, right boss, right specialty and the rest can fall into place.

    MSN in research or NP? What would you choose?

    Go with NP. Then you can be a principal investigator on a clinical research trial!

    Wanting to get away from the bedside

    There are a variety of terms that research enterprises use for nurses: research nurses, research nurse coordinators, research coordinator, clinical trial coordinator, etc. Go to LinkedIn for some help in finding research positions. They show up on my newsfeed on a daily basis. Get connected with headhunters and research recruiters. Aerotek and Medix are two recruitment agencies that look for nurses for research roles. Google these research companies: PPD, PRA, Quintiles, INC Research, Pfizer, Parexel, ICON, Covance.

    Clinical trial patients how do you handle billing and coding

    Dealing with bills is one of the worst parts of a research nurse coordinator role. Having patients registered in portals that both hospital billing and research billing have access to (such as Velos) can help intercept some of the charges. I have learned that announcing surgeries on clinical trial patients via email ahead of time helps give departments the "heads up" that helps us on the front end, rather than cleaning up messes. Sharing the budget worksheet that is used for each specific trial can also help. And finally, within our department, when we schedule research patients, we would put in "bill to research study." I hope this helps!

    I feel like a complete failure

    Don't give up! Literally apply everywhere possible. Get on LinkedIN and start networking your way into a job.

    GMO Research...

    You could do a literature search and find a plethora of articles on GMO's both pro and con. As for me, I avoid GMO's. I am not currently working on any trials regarding GMO's but I would be most interested in reading about new or current research regarding them. This sort of research would most likely occur in Academia. Getting funding from the government to do this sort of research is a long, slow, arduous process which would inhibit many from completing this sort of work.

    Looking to get into research nursing

    You definitely need to stick it out where you are at and get that one year of nursing under your belt. There are clinical research programs (master's degree) where you can start now and learn all about research. You can also go to: Association of Clinical Research Professionals - Launching Your Career You can join ACRP before being certified. They have a wealth of info on their web site. For now, focus on getting that basic nursing experience under your belt- be patient and stick it out. Ten years from now, you'll be glad that you did. Good Luck!

    Questions about Research Nursing

    We are hiring! I need another research nurse and another clinical research coordinator in my group. We are in Kansas City at KUMC. Contact me today for details...you need a CCRC (or willing to test and obtain it) and have a minimum of an associate's degree but we prefer BSN and MSN. Typical day includes screening for new patients, learning about new protocols, visiting with patients, learning and growing in a university setting, entering data, and mentoring others. Sometimes, I'm asked to find more great people to join my team, like right now! :)

    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?

    Indiana State University

    Can anyone tell me their experience with the application process with this school? I am trying to get in, but was not accepted as a transfer student. I will attempt again as a post-master's student, and hopefully get into the post-master's certificate program for NP's.
