    Hi, I was recently taught by a genetic nurse and I wasnt aware that as a nurse you could specialise that area, so I was wondering if anyone knows if you can be a pharmacology nurse or something similar? Or of an area that focuses on drugs within the body etc and neurotransmitters and hormones within the brain?
    Thanks!

    No, unfortunately that role does not exist within nursing. Nurses may take a prescribing course, but this is limited to the clinical area that they work in and is not a huge part of their workload. The majority of what most nurses do is clinical patient care, not the study of drugs, as this is done by a pharmacist.
