Global Research Nurses is a network developed by nurses for nurses. The prime focus is to help nurses engage, learn and seek opportunities to work in clinical research, and ultimately develop and lead their own studies.

Global Research Nurses endeavours to give nurses, involved in or conducting their own clinical research, a voice.
