Advisor Handbook

After being hired as a health science classroom teacher, the first question that we all face is: “What is HOSA?”

Quickly you discover there is a lot to learn not only about teaching the subject areas  but also about sponsoring a HOSA chapter and its value to the students.

It takes time and patience to develop the balance and wisdom needed to proficiently sponsor a HOSA chapter. The good news is, you don’t need to know it ALL to be a good HOSA advisor. If you focus on what really matters – the students – you will be a very successful HOSA Advisor.

Have a great membership year and let us know how we can be helpful!

Do you need a HOSA Advisor Name Badge?

SC HOSA will purchase your first name badge for you at no cost to you.  If you’ve already received one, you  may order another one for $10.
