About Us

Pocket Nurse® is a leading manufacturer and distributor of medical supplies and equipment for simulation and healthcare education. A nurse-owned-and-operated company, Pocket Nurse has been a trusted partner in nursing, EMS, pharmacy, and allied healthcare education since 1992.

Our work enhances suitable learning environments for future healthcare professionals, and we take that responsibility very seriously.


In 1992 the company sold a single product—the Pocket Nurse® pocket organizer that included bandage scissors, a hemostat, an integrated penlight, and an engraved nameplate. The Pocket Nurse was a success, but owner Anthony Battaglia, MS, BSN, RN, had a vision to help Health Educators in their instructional efforts. In the 25 years following, we’ve made it our mission to meet those needs, even if it means developing entirely original products like the InjectEd® injection simulator.

Today, we carry over 5,600 products including Pocket Nurse® brand products, Demo Dose® simulated medications and Student Health Totes. Although we no longer carry the company's namesake product, it lives on in the success of our brand.
