How to Become a Clinical Research Nurse

The first step in becoming a clinical research nurse (CRN) is to complete a nursing program or obtain a bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN). Once you complete your nursing program, prospective CRN’s must take the National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN). You then must register as a nurse with your state. Clinical research nurses may need experience in a specific specialty to get a job. Many facilities and hospitals offer internship programs in specialties so nurses can get advanced skills. Certifications in clinical research are available from the Association of Clinical Research Professionals.

What is the ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimate?

To help candidates find their perfect job at their desired pay rate, ZipRecruiter estimates the compensation range for job listings where the employer does not state a pay range.

ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimates are not verified by the employer posting the job, and the actual compensation range for an advertised position may vary, perhaps considerably, from the estimated range.
