Colorado HOSA- Future Health Professionals is a chartered association of international HOSA. We are located in Denver Colorado at the Colorado Community College system office. Colorado HOSA works within Colorado Career and Technical Education (CTE), specifically within the Health Science Program Area. HOSA is classified as a Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) and works closely with the six other main CTSO’s each of which have their own program areas ranging from agriculture to marketing to the skill trades. The main mission of CTE and CTSO’s is to provide career and technical pathways for students in Colorado at the middle, secondary and post-secondary levels.
Colorado HOSA is a Career and Technical Student Organization which offers leadership, service, and competition opportunities for students who are exploring career options in the healthcare field.
Through these programs, HOSA is not only benefitting students but filling an important community need. Across the state of Colorado, there are communities who are in dire need of compassionate, holistic and quality healthcare. According to the U.S. Department of Labor Colorado could face a 4,500 cumulative shortage of nurses by 2024. Colorado HOSA aims to rise up to meet this need to serve the state which we call home.
