Insight: The Journal of the American Society of Ophthalmic Registered Nurses
Ophthalmic nurses may be asked to be part of a research team. This article suggests ways the nurse can prepare for the research coordinator role and negotiate added compensation. Without preparation, the nurse's workload may not be adjusted to accommodate additional tasks and there may be a lack of remuneration. At worst, the nurse may fail to meet the expectations of the investigator and sponsor. Nurse research coordinators can learn new marketable skills, increase income, create opportunities for publications and speaking engagements, and widen their professional network. Sources of additional information about the research coordinator role are provided.
