Career opportunities as clinical review/database management RN

  1. I have potentially been offered a position managing a surgical outcomes database for a growing surgical program at my hospital. The core of the job would be reviewing chart records and entering the info into a database that will be used to measure our outcomes to other hospitals outcomes. Zero patient contact. Wonderful hours and flexibility.

    But what are the career growth opportunities? The manager spoke of opportunities to get involved with various initiatives and research projects.

    But what about opportunities to move up the ladder salary-wise and grow my career? Does anyone have insight into that?

    Also, what kind of salary might I expect? Equivalent to a bedside RN (but salary instead of hourly)? I am in a relatively high paying state for bedside nurses, but I am curious if I should expect a raise or not.
