At the Royal College of Nursing annual international nursing research Conference in Harrogate it was noticeable that clinical research nurses (CRNs) had real presence. They hosted a packed symposium and presented concurrent papers and posters. CRNs have become the driving force behind the growth of research in many areas, even where research has not previously been strong. In the past, CRNs have frequently worked in isolation in extended and specialised roles, and have been employed on short-term contracts where funding is often uncertain. This resulted in many experienced CRNs leaving for more secure employment, which inevitably had consequences for research capacity.
