LA HOSA Future Nurses Camp - A Great Success!
This summer, LA HOSA held its first Future Nurses Camp in partnership with LSU-Alexandria (LSUA). Students participated in a full week of learning nursing skills, along with leadership, professionalism, and different specialties in nursing. By the end of the week, the students were certain of the path for their future. These students are much better prepared to enter nursing school!
A big Thank You to LSUA and the staff, along with the many others who shared with the students to help them have a better understanding of the field of nursing.
Be on the look-out next summer for an LA HOSA Camp near you! New Orleans area will have a Future Nurses Camp and a Future Docs Camp! Applications will be sent to the chapter advisors in the Spring.

HOSA Week: November 7-13, 2021
If your chapter prefers to celebrate HOSA week during another week that is in better alignment with other school activities, that is great! The importance of HOSA week is the recognition of others.
HOSA has designated one week annually to encourage its members to give back
to their communities through activities, presentations, and recognition and to
give thanks to the value, accomplishments and achievements of all who have
made the health profession a better place to work.
HOSA week activities are designed to provide school or community service,
promote opportunities and show appreciation to the health community.
