Biographical details

After training at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Janice has had a long career in the field of cardiac nursing including acute cardiology, intensive care, clinical trials and many years as a clinician and educator in cardiothoracic surgery. Expanding her education with an undergraduate and master’s degree in Fine Arts, Janice followed with doctoral research exploring the lived experience of lung volume reduction procedures for COPD. Janice was most recently situated at the Concord Repatriation General Hospital where she worked as a Cardiology Clinical Nurse Consultant and coordinator for the hospital’s Medical Emergency Service and ALS training programs. During this time, she maintained close ties with the Sydney Nursing School as an Honorary Clinical Associate Professor and continues to lead a research Community of Practice for Clinical Nurse Consultants and Nurse Practitioners. Janice has been an active member of the Agency for Clinical Innovation’s Cardiac Services’ Network and is a member of the editorial board of Australian Critical Care Journal. Joining the Sydney Nursing School as a senior lecturer in 2012, Janice brings thirty years of clinical nursing experience and professional leadership in acute and critical care nursing.

Research interests

My publications explore the family-centred experience of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, medical emergency team processes, patient and carer experience in clinical redesign and organisational models of nursing care. With close colleague Associate Professor Sandra West, I lead a research community of practice for clinical nurse consultants and nurse practitioners that has produced novel findings in such fields as severe burn injury, gastro-intestinal cancer, orthopaedic surgery and haemodialysis.

Teaching and supervision

I coordinate the Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma and Master of Emergency and Intensive Care Nursing courses. I teach across pre- and post-registration coursework in the areas of cardiac nursing, advanced life support, research in clinical practice, advanced practice nursing and health promotion.
