Nurse Practitioners are advance practice nurses with additional training, often at the Masters or PhD level, who provide healthcare services similar to those of a doctor. They have a unique approach focusing on health promotion, disease prevention, and parent education.

She received her Diploma in Nursing at Butterworth Hospital School of Nursing and her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and completed her Master of Science in Maternal-Child Health as a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Pediatrics at Boston College School of Nursing.
Her nursing experience includes working in adult and pediatric intensive care units as well as neonatal intensive care units. She worked with The Infant Health and Development Program, a research study for high-risk infants. In addition, she worked as a visiting nurse providing home care and health education for infants and children.
She is licensed by the California Board of Registered Nursing to practice as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and is a member of the American Nurses Association as well as the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners.
Janice and her husband, Dr. Mark McCormick, have two children. She enjoys reading, yoga, tap dancing, and going on walks with friends and her family.
Our highly qualified pediatric nurse practitioner meets with families for well visits and acute illnesses for children of any age, but particularly at the six-month and fifteen-month well visits, to promote nutritional, safety, and sleep counseling. She always practices under the supervision of the Altos Pediatrics pediatricians.
Janice also works with families, who will be traveling internationally. She can provide information on jet lag, motion sickness, traveler's diarrhea, malaria prevention, and provide a review of prior vaccinations and make recommendations on additional vaccines.
