Working toward developing existent medical procedures, clinical research nurses are at the forefront of the improvement of patient care. They help to invent new drugs and treatments by proposing, managing, and concluding clinical research, collecting data, and creating reports summarizing their findings.
According to a survey, 77% of people would consider participating in a clinical research study. Clinical research nurses support patients participating in clinical trials and are responsible for their safety during these processes. They create regulations and documentation for these trials and have an in-depth understanding of the procedures and terminology of their research.
Research nurses are highly organized and have excellent communication skills, apart from having education in medical and pharmaceutical sciences. They closely collaborate with other researchers in a multidisciplinary team to carry out their work successfully.
