In honor and celebration of the ANA recognition of Clinical Research Nursing as a Specialty Nursing Practice, IACRN is hosting a dinner at the IACRN 8th Annual Conference on Monday, October 24th from 7:00pm - 9:00pm. The dinner will be held in the Oasis Pool Area at the Wyndham hotel.
Through specialty practice, the clinical research nurse (CRN) makes important contributions to the clinical research process, quality of the research outcomes and most importantly the safe expert care of research participants. Members of the IACRN have recognized the special contributions and unique needs of clinical research participants along with the specialty training necessary for the CRN to deliver high quality safe care to all research participants.
CRNs practice globally, their unique body of knowledge consists of specialized training in nursing care, research regulations, scientific process, human subjects protection and data collection, analysis, and interpretation. CRNs care for a wide range of research participants throughout the life span and across states of wellness and disease, in all settings. CRNs are integral members of the research team contributing to high quality research outcomes and are essential to the safe expert care of research participants.
There is no fee for the dinner for conference attendees. IACRN welcomes a voluntary donation / contribution to off-set the cost of the celebration but it is not required.
We invite you to join us to celebrate Clinical Research Nursing Specialty Practice!
