Resources for Advisors

While HOSA-Future Health Professionals is a member-led organization, the role of the Chapter Advisor is invaluable. The chapter advisor helps guide the students as they make decisions for the chapter's operations, and they help students prepare for competitive events. Most importantly, chapter advisors support the students as they work to achieve their goals. 

Below are a couple of resources for advisors to help put their chapter and students in the best position to be successful.

Answers to your Conference FAQ's:

  • Invoices don’t get sent automatically – they have to be generated.

  • If you have typically proctored online testing in the past – you can go ahead and do that but please keep in mind proper testing protocols.

  • Tallo submissions are for high school students only and are required for some events. Points will be deducted if not included. At ILC, students without tallo uploads will not be invited to compete in round 2.

  • Forensic Science online testing will need to be configured by me after registration closes.  (this might be the case with any teamwork event that has a round 1 test)

  • If a student is running for state officer, they MUST be registered to take the HOSA State Officer Exam (Official) AND must complete the application and return by email to me.
