Congratulations!  

We wish to congratulate Anita Zahiri, HOSA member and chapter officer at Ben Franklin High School, who was chosen as the state

High School Student of the Year!

Students compete with their peers at the school system level and may advance to the regional competitions. Students are selected based on academic achievement, leadership skills, character, and service to their schools and communities. Regional selection committees also use electronic portfolios of accomplishments, along with student writing samples and interviews to assess the communication and critical thinking skills of each candidate.

Prior to selecting the three state winners, the state selection committee will conduct interviews and review portfolios and writing samples from each finalist.

 

Congratulations LA HOSA Students!

LA HOSA Future Nurses Camp - A Great Success!

Last 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.

This summer LSUA will host the second annual Future Nurses Program

Baton Rouge area will have a Future Nurses Program held at Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University (FranU).  

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

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.
