Anthony Battaglia shares his transition from pocket protector salesman to President and CEO of Pocket Nurse in new healthcare simulation textbook.

Beyond his contributions to healthcare education, Anthony is remarkable for creating a multi-million dollar company with a ten-ounce pocket protector.

Pocket Nurse® announced Tuesday its President and CEO, Anthony Battaglia, MS, BSN, RN will be featured in the textbook Simulation Champions: Fostering Courage, Caring, and Connection.

“My goal when starting Pocket Nurse was to improve education experiences and thereby patient outcomes,” Battaglia said. “Being identified in a publication called ‘Simulation Champions’ demonstrates that my team and I are meeting those goals.”

The spotlight titled “Voice of Experience: Creating Pocket Nurse” explains that Battaglia created Pocket Nurse to support educators and educational organizations. It also lists Pocket Nurse’s recurring contributions to students like the Anthony Battaglia Scholarship.

The book was published by Wolters Kluwer, a global leader in information services and solutions for healthcare professionals. It was written to prepare today’s simulation leaders to implement new and improve existing simulation programs.

“Beyond his contributions to healthcare education, Anthony is remarkable for creating a multi-million dollar company with a ten-ounce pocket protector,” said Pocket Nurse Senior Corporate Director William Evanson.
