November 9, 2006 – Advance for Nurses

Dr. Marilyn Hockenberry was named The 2006 Best Nurse Leader by Advance for Nurses publication.
For Marilyn Hockenberry, Ph.D., R.N.-C.S., P.N.P., F.A.A.N., the most surprising part about being named the 2006 Best Nurse Leader was that her nominator has not known her all that long. But Bonnie L. Magliaro, M.S., R.N., C.N.S., did not need much time to see that Hockenberry stood out.
“Clearly, anybody who does pediatric nursing knows her because of her texts [Wong’s Essentials of Pediatric Nursing, Wong’s Nursing Care of Infants and Children and Wong’s Clinical Manual], but to meet the real person – I did not expect such a humble, clinically based yet research- and evidence-focused individual who truly works directly with staff and nursing leadership,” Magliaro said.
