In addition, the CRN utilizes evidence-based nursing practice and has expertise in developing and coordinating a plan of care designed to meet the physical, psychological, and social needs of those cancer patients and their families undergoing therapy in a clinical research trial. Strong interpersonal, organizational and communication skills are required. Knowledge of current literature and a commitment to continued learning are also required.
