Middle School Division Handbook
North Carolina Middle School HOSA is for middle school students (Grades 6-8) who are interested in health care. This division of the NC HOSA organization has been designated as a Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) and has been specifically designed to meet the needs of these talented students!
Health Occupation Students of America provides a unique program that helps the individual with LEADERSHIP SKILLS, PHYSICAL, MENTAL, and SOCIAL ENHANCEMENT, EMPLOYMENT, JOB PREPARATION, SELF WORTH, MOTIVATION, AND EMPOWERMENT!
NC HOSA Middle School HOSA allows students the opportunity to learn more about the healthcare field. This information can be used to define a possible future occupation and the skills learned can be used for a lifetime! HOSA programs are taught in middle and high schools, regional vocational/technical centers, community colleges and universities throughout North Carolina and the nation.
The feeling of those who have been involved with HOSA is one of value and satisfaction. HOSA provides skills that can be used no matter the individual's future career plans. These LEADERSHIP skills will help the individual to be both successful in employment and citizenship. The rapidly changing health care system will require workers who are technically skilled and capable of accepting leadership roles. With the changes in health care, including health care reform, HOSA will be a benefit to anyone choosing to be a member of the health care team.
HOSA is endorsed by the United States and North Carolina Departments of Education.
