My school has a HOSA Chapter
If you wish to join HOSA, find out if there is a HOSA chapter at your school. If there is, contact the chapter advisor and obtain membership information.
My school has a health Occupations/Health Science program but no HOSA Chapter.
If your school has a health occupations/science program but no HOSA chapter, talk to the health career program instructor about starting a HOSA Chapter. Many instructors respond favorably to students who wish to take responsiblity for their leadership development. Talk with the instructor about possible alternatives that would enable your school to make available the important opportunities that HOSA membership offers.
You can also contact the Louisiana State Advisor to start a new chapter.
My school does not have a health occupations/health science program.
If your school does not have a health occupations/health science program- or any program designed to prepare students for a future health career, then you may wish to talk to a school administrator or counselor to share your needs and desire to start a HOSA chapter at your school. If you can find a faculty member who will serve as your chapter advisor and at least five members who plan to pursue a health career, you could start a chapter. One of the goals of your HOSA chapter would then be to encourage school leaders to begin a health occupations/health science program.
You can also contact Louisiana State Advisor to start a new chapter.
