About Maria L. Tucker

Biography

Maria Tucker, RN, MSN, NNP-BC provides care for infants of all acuity levels in the NICU and is highly skilled in central line placement. She serves as clinical supervisor for St. Luke's neonatal nurse practitioners, leading a team of NNPs that support all of St. Luke's NICUs (Boise, Meridian, Nampa and Twin Falls).

Maria is especially focused on the nutritional needs of critically ill infants and worked with fellow NNPs, neonatologists and registered dietitians to create a nutritional pathway for infants with extremely low birth weights. She has also worked closely with the surgical team to create a care pathway for infants who require intestinal surgery.

In addition to caring for the infants in the NICU, Maria also enjoys supporting families through their NICU journey. It can be a very stressful time and Maria does her best to provide anticipatory guidance and support for parents.

Maria earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing from California State University, Hayward, and a master’s degree in nursing, neonatal nurse practitioner, from the University of Texas Medical Branch.

When she is not at work, Maria enjoys the beautiful Idaho outdoors, camping, boating, and hiking.
