Nurse proudly wears the cap that defines her profession
If you've visited McKay-Dee Hospital, there's good chance you've seen nurse Linda MacPherson.
There are a lot of nurses at the hospital in Ogden, though, so what makes her stand out from the rest?
Well, for one thing, she still proudly wears the distinctive nurse's hat. She thinks she's probably the only nurse in the area to do so.
"My mother placed my first hat on my head in an unforgettable capping ceremony before I graduated from nursing school
," she said.
"It's a symbol of the profession, whether it be a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse."
MacPherson, 63, a licensed practical nurse and clinical lead for Northern Utah Surgeons at McKay-Dee, said anyone can tell what she does for a living just by looking.
