The Future Nurses Program gives current sophomores and juniors in high school, who are interested in becoming a nurse, an opportunity to obtain information about nursing and participate in hands-on activities, field trips, speaking with & learning from nurses. Students take part in an intense program for 4 days where they will learn about health issues, patient care, job readiness skills, study skills, postsecondary education for nurses, tour of nursing school, and more. This program will be held at Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University (FranU) in Baton Rouge.  Applicants must be able to attend all four days.

LA HOSA Future Nurses Camps

Held at:  LSU-Alexandria School of Nursing

Held at:  Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University, School of Nursing, Baton Rouge

LA HOSA Future Nurses Camps - A Great Success!

This past summer, LA HOSA held its second annual Future Nurses Camp in partnership with LSU-Alexandria (LSUA), where students participated for a full week.

Also, the first annual Future Nurses Camp at FranTciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University (FranU) in Baton Rouge took place.  Students participated in a very full three days of learning!

At both camps students learned and practiced nursing skills, along with leadership, professionalism, and different specialties in nursing, and study skills.  By the end of the camps, 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 and FranU and their staff, along with the many others who shared with the students to help them have a better understanding of the field of nursing.

Next summer LSUA and FranU will again host the annual Future Nurses Program.


Be on the look-out next year for an LA HOSA Camp near you!
