  1. Any clinical research nurses out there?

    Probably true about the RN giving you more opportunities, or being more valuable from a clinical research perspective, but I'm not 100% sure. I've still got a while to go until I meet the time eligibility criteria for certification. Would you have a...
  2. Any clinical research nurses out there?

    Hi central FL research nurse buddy. I am also a CRN transitioning to become a CRC. I too am working towards becoming a CRA in the future. I've been told that I have enough experience to do it now, but I would at least like to get CCRC or CCRP certifi...
  3. Best way to become a research nurse?

    It doesn't matter what unit you come from, only that you can adapt to the research mindset. It is different from any other kind of nursing. A lot of nurses find it difficult to either make the transition or to maintain their interest. Speak to the re...
  4. Research and new grad status?

    OP, you have plenty of experience to get a job as a research nurse. I worked as a research assistant for 2 years in the lab, ended up going to nursing school and worked on the floor for about 9 months before I got my current job as a research nurse. ...
  5. Curious about clinical research nursing

    If you enjoy research and you want to do it for a career, yes. If you are absolutely unable to get a job as an RN doing anything else, yes (saturated job market). Although, if you are unsure this is what you want to do or you have any thoughts of spe...
  6. Curious about clinical research nursing

    As you describe it, that sounds a lot like the research coordinators here. I like to think of them as a liaison between the sponsor, the investigators and the nursing staff and they physically manage the study itself (or multiple studies at the same ...
  7. Looking for a research job?

    You're likely right about the nursing license. That may be something you have to get before your info can make it past the human resources screening. I'm also unsure of how to navigate international work permits because it sure seems like you have en...
  8. Looking for a research job?

    Are you going to be looking for a nursing research job and teaching as a PhD or are you looking into working as a nurse on clinical research trials? Are you looking to work in New York City or somewhere else in New York? I'd guess NYC probably has th...
  9. Curious about clinical research nursing

    I guess it depends on what the job responsibilities are. I'm guessing most places are different depending on how large they are and what type of research trials they do. At my location we mainly do phase 1 trials, which typically has healthy particip...
  10. MSN Student Requests Interview with Researcher

    What kind of nurse researcher did you have in mind? Nurses can work in nursing research (research focusing on improving/progressing the field of nursing or bedside care by nurses) or clinical research (research focused more on treatments). I work in ...
  11. I am wondering the same thing. I have 2 years of academic research with my BSN and ~6 mo experience as an RN. I'll be applying to CRC and CRA positions. Hopefully my research experience makes me stand out as a good candidate.
  12. New Grad / Difficult time

    Have you considered moving to Alabama? You've already gotten offers, but chose not to take them. Move back to AL, get your experience, maybe consider enrolling in an online RN-BSN program and then you shouldn't have a problem getting a job in Atlanta...
  13. LOW pay in South East FL.

    You are correct. Sorry to offer a bleak outlook, but I haven't heard of anywhere in central Florida paying more than $24/hr to start as a new grad RN. I would believe it is that way in most of the SE US. There's a reason it is almost impossible to ge...
  14. The first question you should ask yourself is "why do I want to become a nurse anesthetist?". What about the work excites you? Can you see yourself doing it as a career? Have you shadowed a CRNA? You may be able to do that if you ask around. In gene...
  15. Appropriate additional PRN job

    I'm about 4 months in to my first nursing job. It's been okay for me and I've had an excellent orientation. I work 3 days per week, but I've found I don't like too much time off. I'd like to work an additional PRN job (once a week/every other week), ...
