Janice E. Shaner, RN, BSN, MS, CCRN, CFRN, Clinical Nurse at Complete Children’s Health, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Nurses for dedication, achievements, and leadership in nursing.

In her youth, Ms. Shaner watcher her grandmother, mother, and aunt all excel as nurses, which naturally compelled her to join the family business and become a registered nurse. In 1979, she received a diploma in nursing from the Lutheran Deaconess School of Nursing in Minneapolis, as well as a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Moorhead State University in 1991. Additionally, she went on to obtain a Master’s in health care administration from Bellevue University in 2000. Ms. Shaner officially commenced her career as a registered nurse with the Jewish Hospital in St. Louis in 1979, where she specialized as a surgical nurse. From 1980 to 1996, she served MeritCare Hospital in North Dakota as a nurse, as well as a flight nurse specialist with MeritCare Life Flight from 1988 to 1996. Continuing in the air health field, for nearly 20 years she worked as a program director for StarCare Air Ambulance in Nebraska. Finally, from 2015 to 2017, she was a clinical nurse at the Complete Children’s Hospital.

Looking back on her career. Ms. Shaner is most proud of her contributions to maintaining and increasing the standards of education, safety, and quality management in the industry, as she believes protocol was quite haphazard in the early years of her career. In this regard, she served as an item writer to the Flight Nurse Certification Exam from 1994 to 1998. Ms. Shaner is a member of the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses, American Heart Association, Emergency Nurses Association, and National Transport Nurses Association, of which she is a former chapter president and board member. She also serves as executive secretary for the Commission on Medical Transport Services and a volunteer at Clinic with a Heart. In her free time, she enjoys reading, rollerblading, boating, and kickboxing.
