Hello all,I'm hoping there are some individuals here, who are willing to share their journey towards entering the research/clinical trial aspect of nursing. I have a BS in molecular biology and in less than 7 months I will be relocating and hope to begin an RN program. I am currently taking some pre-reqs and I am in the process of completing a CNA program in order to work/build professional relationships in the medical field, whilst attending school. Can someone please provide some tips on the most direct path to obtain this goal (I'm not looking for shortcuts, just help/ideas)?Things you know now, that you wish you knew before?Is a PhD necessary or recommended? What sort of experiences should I attempt to gain prior to entering the research field?Any and all advice will be a huge help. Thank you for your time.
