Position Overview

The Clinical Research Nurse play an important role in clinical trials. In addition to providing and coordinating clinical care, they have a central role in assuring participant safety, maintenance of informed consent, integrity of protocol implementation as well as working closely with the principal investigator.  Moreover, clinical research nurses must continually balance the requirements of the clinical trials along with any amendments (i.e., closing a study arm; adding a drug to the study) with the clinical needs of the patient. Clinical Research Nurses improve recruitment of patients by supporting patients with making informed decisions about clinical trials participation.

Research Nurses support researchers by providing the required elements necessary to retain regulatory and ethical compliance with all aspects of the clinical research process.  This position will assist in supporting the mission of protecting human research subjects by acting in a manner consistent with Good Clinical Practices (GCP) and all applicable institutional guidelines.

The Clinical Research Nurse manages and supports their assigned research studies throughout the regulatory process from initial Institutional Review Board (IRB) application until protocol closure.  The Clinical Research Nurse will provide consistent oversight to ensure competent and standardized practices, and coordinate strategies to enhance departmental communication and collaboration.
