RAPID CITY, S.D. (Sept. 26, 2022) –

Ivory Jenson, a Certified Nursing Assistant in the Progressive Care Unit at Rapid City Hospital has received the TULIP Award. This award is presented to nursing support caregivers who exemplify Monument Health’s values of trust, respect, compassion, community and excellence. These individuals make a difference in the lives of their patients and patient families, and are a vital part of our nursing care teams. Ivory was nominated by a patient’s parent.

In the nomination, the patient’s parent described Ivory’s care, remarking that she was very efficient and caring, and that she learned in conversation that Ivory plans to attend nursing school in the future. “I have been a nurse for 17 years and I am still learning daily, and recently, I learned from the CNA who provided outstanding care to my son,” the parent wrote. “She was a very bright light during a very unsettling time. I did tell her that she would make a great nurse someday and I meant it. We can all learn from Ivory.”

TULIP is an acronym for, “Thoughtful upbeat loving individuals caring for patients,” and the TULIP Award recognizes outstanding members of Monument Health’s nursing support teams. Nursing support includes positions such as Nurse Aides, Certified Nursing Assistants, Emergency Department Technicians, Psychiatric Technicians, Health Unit Clerks, Dialysis Technicians, Clinical Assistants, Cardiac Monitoring Technicians, Activities Assistants, Medical Assistants, Certified Medical Assistants, Medication Aides and Restorative Assistants. Caregivers in Rapid City are selected four times a year for this recognition. Caregivers are also honored in Custer, Lead-Deadwood, Spearfish and Sturgis. Visit to nominate.
