Abstract:
The increasing complexity of the drug development process as well as the advanced sophistication of newly approved oncology agents has created a heightened need for nurses to assume leadership roles both during the drug development process and in the education of clinical professionals. The PIN SIG has brainstormed ideas for a podium presentation and agree that the following areas are what nurses most ask questions about, and it is our role to explore and answer them. The purpose of this analysis is to explore the variety of nursing leadership roles within the pharmaceutical industry and understand what it takes to enter this unique career path and develop into a strong nursing leader within industry. The roles and responsibilities of the Clinical Monitor, Clinical Educator and Clinical Scientist will be discussed and skill sets which are expected of those nurses interested in entering the field. Non-traditional industry roles will be mentioned, including the consultant role, marketing, and managerial opportunities. The following processes/questions will be addressed: a. What should one consider when deciding to pursue working in industry? b. What credentials and experience are required? c. How does one investigate opportunities and secure an interview? Should a contract organization be considered? d. How to explore this career path: 1. Internship programs 2. Journals 3. Websites 4. Networking 5. Job shadow 6. PIN SIG e. Are there other roles in industry that can be explored? The contributions that nurses have made in their leadership roles will be reviewed. This will allow nurses to see how they can make a difference even though it is outside of a traditional clinical role.
