She was a clinical supervisor and then a manager for the clinical support unit (CSU) before becoming the director of enterprise resource and staffing. She will bring her strong understanding of nursing practice, staffing and operations to her combined responsibilities as COO/CNO.

Misty Robertson, DNP, RN, FACHE has been named chief operating officer/chief nursing officer (COO/CNO) serving St. Luke’s Nampa Medical Center. Her first day is also Aug. 30.

Robertson is a champion of quality, having accumulated three Qualis Awards of Excellence and in her most recent position, a Regional Level III Baldrige Excellence Award. She also believes strongly in St. Luke’s community-focused mission and appreciates that the Nampa medical center leaders have traditionally been very connected to the community.
Robertson is eager to apply her experience and education to the new position. “With my experience and having just completed my doctorate (from Boise State), I am eager to be able to apply what I’ve learned to further system and hospital population and community health goals.”
Robertson, born in Idaho, is excited to have the opportunity to return to and serve the area where she grew up.
