Research Nurses recruitment agency listing

Research nurses are involved in looking after the participants of clinical trials. They may collect data, provide drug treatments and placebos, and offer supportive care.

To work as a research nurse, a degree in nursing is required. To obtain a place on a degree course, at least five GCSEs, including in English, maths and science, and a minimum of three A levels, including biology, are required. Alternative qualifications, such as successful completion of an Access to Nursing course, may be accepted. Evidence of paid or voluntary employment in a healthcare environment is also likely to be required.

It is possible for healthcare assistants with an NVQ Level 3 in Health to study for a degree in nursing through part-time study. Graduates with a degree in a subject related to nursing may also be able to become nurses by studying for an accelerated nursing programme for graduates.

Following gaining experience of working in a hospital environment, nurses can apply for research nurse roles. Such roles usually require nurses to have specific skills, such as experience of taking blood samples and administering drugs intravenously, as well as a willingness to undertake appropriate staff training.

In addition to relevant qualifications and skills, research nurses require strong communication skills, a non-judgemental attitude to care, good team working skills, a compassionate and sensitive manner, good organisational skills, and an ability to inspire trust in clinical trial participants.

Typical employers of research nurses include pharmaceutical companies, hospital academic departments and contract research organisations. Jobs are often advertised through specialist recruitment agencies and in pharmaceutical publications.

Research nurses may earn between £20,000 and £35,000 a year, depending on their skills, experience and place of work.
