Core Values


“Since beginning employment at Riverside, I have been presented with many opportunities to grow both personally and professionally. I started as a CNA and later was trained as a nurse tech. I have formed many valuable relationships with residents, family members, and co-workers. So many of the things I’ve learned at work have helped me succeed in nursing school and vice versa. The tuition investment program (TIP) has provided me with financial assistance towards my education. This is a truly great opportunity that is offered here at Riverside, and I’m very grateful to have been a part of it. I’d highly recommend for anyone who is eligible to apply for it.”
“I work at Eagle Crest South and I am currently in the nursing program at Western Technical College. I chose to work for Bethany Lutheran Homes because I have always thought of them as a great company in the La Crosse area. My grandma had Alzheimer’s and was a resident at one of the Hearten Houses and at Bethany Riverside. While she was there I noticed the great care that she received and I knew that I wanted to be a part of it someday. I have enjoyed caring for and getting to know the wonderful residents in memory care at ECS for the past two years."
"I have encouraged all of my coworkers who are continuing their education in the healthcare field to apply for the tuition investment program because it has helped me greatly in my journey to become a nurse. Because of the tuition investment program’s financial assistance, I will be graduating debt free!”
“I am fortunate enough to work for a wonderful company that provides their employees with financial assistance for going to school. The TIP program has helped me pay for books and tuition for school. Bethany Lutheran Homes goes above and beyond to help their employees balance work and school. I love my job as a CNA at Eagle Crest South and I am looking forward to my career as a RN, BSN. Thank you, TIP program!”
