HOSA Members Start Hitting The Books

HOSA members getting books to study for testing.

Students who are a part of the HOSA Future Health Professionals Club have started preparing for preliminary round testing. Every year students who are a part of HOSA spend the week after Thanksgiving break taking tests in the many different medical fields and right now they have started preparing. Students testing in the preliminary round tests are reading books and studying peciders and all sorts of different things to get ready, and if they study hard enough they could go all the way to state, and maybe even nationals.

Mrs. Wegener, who is the sponsor for HOSA said, ¨This is an opportunity of a lifetime and there are so many ways to further your knowledge of the healthcare world.¨

There are so many different things to test in and each student tests in 6 different areas. The areas are health science events, health professions events, emergency preparedness events, leadership events, teamwork events, and recognition events, which can open a lot of different doors for you. There is no way to know for sure what is going to be on the test no matter how many times you test so you can only prepare to a certain point. Most students take tests that range from 30 – 60 minutes and never find out their scores. They never release scores so only people who go to State know how good they actually did on the tests. Now even if you don’t know your score and you don’t make it to State, these tests can further your knowledge in the field that you might want to go into one day. Also, you have the chance to open doors and meet people who work in different health fields and who could help you further your path. Students do this every year, and many of them would tell you there is nothing to fear. 

Yoseline Nova, who is also the flag bearer of the club, said she is halfway there preparing for the exam. “I have been looking over things and reviewing.¨ said Nova.  She, like others, feels like they are half ready and half not but are going to work hard to continue to work at gaining knowledge. Nerves are high and papers are flying as the HOSA members get closer and closer to the final stages of preparation and the beginning stages of testing.
