Meet Mary Woten, BS, BSN, EBSCO’s Nursing and Allied Health Section Editor. Learn more about her and how her expertise is used to help EBSCO create top-notch nursing and allied health content.
A. I live near the ocean in San Francisco and love taking walks in the fog. I am the mother of two young adults, one of whom is at University of Michigan working on a PhD in cancer biology and the other is a senior at Tulane — they have flown very far from the nest! I love travel, am comfortably conversational in German, and would love to relocate to Europe for a time.
A. I worked in critical care, primarily in a surgical ICU caring for post-op open heart surgery patients. I also spent a few years working in oncology at a teaching hospital, primarily caring for patients undergoing their first round of chemotherapy to treat leukemia and other blood disorders. Additionally, I spent several years writing clinical content for EBSCO’s Nursing & Allied Health team before becoming a Section Editor.
A. I became very interested in biology and medicine in high school and went to college planning to go to medical school. After being treated for cancer in college, however, I decided I liked the hands-on nursing role better and pursued a BSN at the University of San Francisco after completing my BS in biology at Stanford.
A. The opportunity to stretch myself in a leadership role.
A. Knowing that we are creating a quality product that will positively impact healthcare delivery.
A. Quality of care, clinical accuracy and evidence-based nursing practice are my professional passions!
