Could clinical research nursing be your perfect side hustle?

A recent report from Zapier found that 40% of Americans have a ‘side hustle’ – which means an additional way they make money outside of their day job.

If you have the right experience, taking on a nursing side hustle in clinical research might be the perfect way to earn extra income in a meaningful way. Supporting patients taking part in clinical trials is also an excellent opportunity to expand your knowledge, enhance your skills and test the waters of a different career path.

The current state of nursing

Following the upheaval of the COVID-19 pandemic and the strain on healthcare systems around the world, a 2022 report by Trusted Health found that 64% of nurses want to leave the healthcare profession – an increase of 40% from a similar survey undertaken in 2021.

Of those nurses actively looking to leave their current jobs:

  • 60% wanted a job away from the bedside
  • 34% were looking for a job outside of nursing
  • 21% had plans to leave their jobs within the next year
  • 3% were planning to retire from the workforce

Not only are burnout and stress playing a part in many nurses’ decisions to leave their jobs, but amidst soaring inflation, the 2020 National Nursing Workforce Survey revealed many nurses are earning the bare minimum they need to get by.

It’s no surprise that so many nurses are looking for ways to supplement their income in a more fulfilling way – and they’re seeing starting a side hustle on their terms as the answer.
