Monday, 16 October 2017 10:23

The NIHR CRN celebrated International Nurses Day on 12th May with a national event just for Clinical Research Nurses. Research Nurses provided an insight into their role and what they think the future of research nursing looks like in some short interviews available to view online. Held in London, the event was entitled: "Contributing to new futures: Clinical Research Nurses, voices that lead". Director of Nursing, Learning and Organisational Development, Dr Susan Hamer, and Head of Workforce and Learning, Dr Fiona O'Neil, led the day attended by NIHR Clinical Research Nurses. The focus of the event was on research nurses being leaders, a key theme for some of the presentations and poster sessions from the research nurses themselves.
