I've been in clinical research for 15 years and I love it. I suspect I'll be doing it for a while yet.
I've been thinking about nurses who have considered clinical research, and what it is about research that they thought might be attractive? Is it the collection of data, office hours, getting away from the regular ward work? Doing something completely different? Liked the idea of a mix of admin & clinical? Managing a study or project?
What made you decide to not to go down the clinical research path? If you have done research what attracted you to it? If you did research and left, why?
I'm often looking for nurses for my clinical research group and was interested in the back story. For those that thought about it but were dissuaded for some reason or did it and left.
Hoping for some interesting discussion.
