RECLIP Nursing Working Group

The RECLIP Nursing Working Group aims to serve as a discussion forum for pediatric clinical research nurses in Spain, as well as with nursing groups from other European countries. The group leaders will act as interlocutors with other existing initiatives both nationally and internationally in order to not duplicate efforts and facilitate interaction between the different groups.
RECLIP Nursing Working Group aims to address different challenges, such as: the limited visibility of research nursing, training needs, CV and job description requirements.
