National Cremation Service Celebrates National Nurses’ Day
National Cremation, the nation’s oldest and largest provider of cremation services, celebrates National Nurses’ Day on May 6 with a free doughnut breakfast for nurses. The breakfast will take place from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Dev’s Donuts in Marietta, Georgia.
Nurses, hospice workers, student nurses, and other care workers in the nursing profession can join the National Cremation Atlanta’s team at Dev’s, located in the Grove Park Plaza at 1812 Powder Springs Road Southwest, Suite 2115 on May 6 for free doughnuts and the opportunity to learn more about funeral services and end-of-life options such as cremation from the NCS team.
Those who would like to attend should present their work identification card to show that they are engaged in the nursing profession. Student nurses can show their student ID to receive their doughnut. Hospice care workers can present a business card or their certification card.
Dorsey Thomas, Location Manager of National Cremation Service’s Atlanta office stated, “This breakfast shows our appreciation for nursing professionals and the challenging job they do every day. We also want to help educate them about what we do, since nurses are in contact with individuals and families who are facing end-of-life decisions. It’s important to help prepare nurses for questions from patients and their families, so they can provide assistance to those who are in need.”
Each May 6 since 1982, the American Nurses’ Association has honored the nation’s nurses for their tireless commitment 365 days a year on National Nurses’ Day, also known as National RN Recognition Day. Since 1991, National Nurses’ Day has been the kickoff event of National Nurses’ Week, which extends from May 6 through 12, ending on Florence Nightingale’s birthday.
National Cremation’s Marietta office provides concierge funeral services that put families in control of the funeral arrangements and memorial service of their loved ones. National Cremation handles all the details surrounding the death of a loved one, including transport of the deceased from place of death, death certificates, paperwork, Social Security and other notifications, and funeral arrangements, while still allowing families to remain as involved as they would like in memorializing their loved one.
According to Thomas, “our convenient options allow families to trust that the necessary arrangements will be handled professionally, while remembering their loved ones in the way that feels right to them and fits their budget. We can handle most arrangements via email or fax, so that families do not have to visit our offices and are able to focus on remembrance or spending time with other family members.”
