Job Summary

Clinical research is vital for finding new treatments and improving patient care. Research nurses are at the forefront of this process.

The Clinical Research Nurse (CRN) nurse independently provides nursing care; identifies and communicates the impact of the research process on patient care; adjusts interventions based on findings; and reports issues/variances promptly to the research team. The CRN generates and collects patient data according to protocol specifications; evaluates the patient response to therapy; and integrates evidence-based practice into nursing practice. The CRN contributes to teams, workgroups and the nursing shared governance process. New skills and knowledge are acquired that are based on self-assessment, feedback from peers and supervisors, and changing clinical practice requirements.

The CRN provides nursing support and expertise to non-licensed research staff (i.e. coordinators, assistants), plans and coordinates strategies for increasing patient enrollment, improving efficiency, training of personnel, and identifying new research opportunities. Ensures compliance with all federal and local agencies including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and local Institutional Review Board (IRB).
