Janice is an excellent clinician, patient advocate, and team player. As a staff nurse, she took a great deal of pride in ensuring her patient’s families were well informed. She consistently provided them education on their diagnosis, medication therapy, and plan of care. She treated her patients as if they were her own. Janice continually strives to provide the best resources she can. She achieved her CLC and is our personal resource on lactation education for our families in the PICU. As soon as a newborn or infant is admitted to the unit, she assists breastfeeding and offering the best nutrition they can provide their child. In 2011, Janice assumed the role of Interim Clinical Educator to help support her team. She has taken on the role by dedicating 110% in ensuring that the PICU staff is well informed and updated as soon as information is shared. She continually walks the unit, providing unofficial education to the staff on a daily basis. Janice is well respected by her team and is looked upon as a skilled clinical resource. She goes above and beyond with her patients and families by consistently advocating for early discharge needs, performing thorough interdisciplinary rounds and teaching patients and families about multiple educational opportunities, such as baby basics, CPR, trach teaching to name a few. Additionally, Janice has been a strong proponent for advocating national certifications. With some staff members as her supporters, she achieved over a dozen bedside nurses achieving their CPN recognitions in a single quarter alone. Thank you for all you do for PICU!!
