National Nurses Day is observed on May 6, and Farmington High School nurse, Sharon Lee, deserves to be recognized.

“I feel humbled,” Lee said when asked how it feels to be honored on Nurses Day. “I do a job just like everyone else.”

National Nurses Day was started to raise awareness for the important role nurses play in society. A week in May is set aside each year to honor those who work hard caring for the community. The week ends on May 12, because that is Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Nightingale is known as the founder of modern nursing.

A nurse does a lot; they take care of little pains, big pains, illness, and are trained to care for the sick.

Most people think nurses mainly work in hospitals, but some also work in schools, outpatient clinics, or serve in the military.

The most challenging part of her job, Lee said, is trying to reach parents with concerns for their student.

“Many times phone numbers are changed, they aren’t in the area, etc., and I can’t communicate with them regarding the issue at hand.”

Lee encourages all students to keep their contact information up-to-date in case of emergencies.

“The nurse at FHS is really cool and stands up for students which makes her cooler. Most nurses aren’t like that,” said freshman Serra Kimsey.
