yes i believe nursing is changing its trend.Im on my last semester phd programme.my research field is physiology in analgesics(pain) and im currently studying induced nociceptive and neuropathic pain in mice.I have a bunch of collegues who are also studying different fields like stress response in patients who are in a coma,toxicology and food bourne pathogens,and many more.What exactly were you looking for in reaserch?let me know if i can help
I'm looking to get back into research, pharmaceutical research would be nice since I had over 10 years experience there. It seems to be very hard to break into this field here in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I was formerly from Chicago which I believe I had more opportunities. The universities here don't do that much research and the ones that do I've tried to apply for those jobs but never seem to get an interview. We even have a cancer treatment center out here and when I tried to apply there they had no RN positions available. Not sure where else I can go but I would like to get out of floor nursing, my legs just can't handle all of that running around anymore. Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated.

Sep 24, '05Joined: Sep '05; Posts: 26i understand i have had my share in schock trauma and it was time to move on i know where you are coming from. i know for sure we have a pharmaceutical programme for nurses here at university of maryland.Most nurses who work there however the entry level is masters and persuing pHd.Did you indicate that or BSN?infact some of them work in hand at the school of pharmacy with pharm Ds.You may want to check johns hopkins too.If maryland is not your thing,you can check Indiana state university.Im now in reasearch and can not complain.
good luck and let me know how things work out.
Sep 24, '05Joined: Sep '05; Posts: 26clinical reasearch is diversified and the criteria for entry differs specify what exactly what you are looking to get into.The other thing i know biotech is the only programme with 2 yr associates degree.for you to get into medtech or clinical reasesrch you have to go back to school.

I'm an RN and a research coordinator and can't wait to build up enough time to sit for the certification exam. I just left private practice research and took a job doing research in trauma and burns. I am very excited, there is a lot to learn. Would love to hear from all of you!!!

I do infectious diseases/immunology/HIV research..mostly pharmaceutical. I have also done several vaccine studies for well-children and for children with HIV. I took the CCRC exam three years ago..it's quite a challenge, but worth it!!! Nice meeting you.Hi, I come to this site often, but rarely post.

Dec 11, '05Occupation: Registered Nurse Joined: Jan '04; Posts: 8So nice of you all to answer my post. Let me tell you a little about myself. I have mainly worked in the research arena. I Began in 1997 when I was an RRT, and I continued as an RN. Most of my work has been in biomedical research at the Primate center here where I live. About 8 months ago I made the leap into working with humans. It is very different and offers its own challenges!!! I am just getting started at my new job and will have to tell you all about it once I get going.

It is a full time job, there is alot of paperwork to track and you have to stay on top of things/ so far I really like it but I still have alot to learn. I will be going to a national conference in Jan so I hope that will help some

Hi all! This is my first post...just registered today! I found this BB to be very good for nurses to communicate! I was wondering tho, are there any clinical research nurses out there? None of the posts under "research nursing" really applied. I would like to see somebody in the same field respond.
I am a Certified Clinical Research Coordinator at a University and do all types of studies.

Dec 29, '05Joined: Nov '05; Posts: 8Yet I too, am a research coordinator. I work in clinical trials for the hematology group in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. I just told my sister on the long 5 hour drive home in the snow from Christmas break that I love my job. For the first time in five years I love getting up in the morning and going to work. I love my patients and I too love that I have no body fluids on me. Props to you San Antonio for asking where we are!!

Dec 30, '05Occupation: Research Scientist Joined: Dec '03; Posts: 16Hi,
I am currently working as a scientist and would like to do clinical research. Can anyone tell me how they got started? Did you first work on the med-surg floor and then proceeded to clinical research? I just graduated from nursing school.
Dec 31, '05Occupation: rn Joined: Jul '99; Posts: 18Hi all...I've just peeked in after quite awhile and how nice to see some interest in this group. I work as a research nurse in GI oncology clinical trials. In many ways it reminds me of my years and years in ICU....the pace, the intermittent adrenalin rush; and my very few years in home health....the paperwork! I guess that's everywhere though. My patients are wonderful, ...the reason to be anywhere if you're a nurse. There's so much to say on the subject it's hard to know where to start. For getting into it I agree that there are so many types of research done in more places that I'm even aware of, it's probably very diifficult to formulate "the recipe". Happy to answer any questions regarding my particular area though.
