Surgeon General Internship

Materials for the HOSA Internship at the Office of the US Surgeon General are now available at the National HOSA website. Please review these – it would be incredible to have Nevada represented at this experience again!

Scholarship Deadline Clarification

There are two deadlines published for the Nevada HOSA Scholarship. We are going to use the later of the two deadlines – so the deadline for Nevada HOSA Scholarships is March 1. Please note – the only way to apply for Nevada HOSA Scholarships is to upload your materials online.

Health Science Enrollment Award – ACTION REQUIRED

Only 8 of our nearly 40 chapters have completed the form indicating their student enrollment in health science programs. As long as at least 5% of your enrolled students are HOSA members, you are eligible for this award. Many of you got your perpetual plaque last year – this is how you get a plate this year (or your plaque if you don’t have one yet). If you do not complete this form, you will not get a plaque. We have received forms from Battle Mountain, Carson, Clark, Reed, Southeast, Spanish Springs, and Western. The form can be found here:


2016-17 Calendar for Nevada HOSA

The tentative calendar for Nevada HOSA for 2016-17 is available here and ready to share with your school, district, and partners so that you can plan ahead for 2016-17. Not all locations or dates are confirmed yet, though most major ones are.

Health Science Online Testing Winners

These were announced as an individual announcement last week, but they are again included here for your review.

Proposed Bylaw Amendment

The Nevada HOSA Board of Trustees has proposed an amendment to the student bylaws. The bylaw amendment would change the structure of the state officer team – retiring some positions and creating regional vice presidents for all regions. The complete rational and proposed amendment is available here. Voting Delegates will vote on this amendment at the business meeting of the State Leadership Conference. Bylaw changes would not impact officers until the 2017-18 team is elected (changes would NOT impact the team being elected at this year’s SLC). Please feel free to contact any board member with questions about this proposal.

Upcoming Deadlines:

We have several very important deadlines coming up – so please review them carefully!
