CNA Certification Classes - Lindsborg Hospital
Lindsborg Community Hospital and Bethany Home will once again be hosting the Scholarship CNA Training Program in conjunction with Hutchinson Community College.  As the name implies, tuition, books, fees and meals are completely underwritten with no cost to the student.  It truly is an incredible opportunity to gain insight and experience in the medical field. This year we will be offering 3 sessions:  Session 1 – May 11-May 29, Session 2 – May 29-June 17, Session 3 – July 6-July 23.  Each session will be limited to only 12 students, so encourage those interested to get their applications in soon.  The deadline for applications is March 27, 2020.  I would also encourage the students to focus on the essay questions.  That is the only way the selection committee gets to know who they are. A PDF copy of both the brochure and the application is available in the Student Center.  It can also be found on our website at
