THE HOSA CREED
I believe: in the health care profession.
I believe: in the profession for which I am being trained and in the opportunities.
I believe: in education.
I believe: that through education I will be able to make the greatest use of my skills, knowledge and experience in order to become a contributing member of the health care team of my community.
I believe: in myself.
I believe: that by using the knowledge and skills of my profession I will become more aware of myself. Through fulfilling these goals I will become a more responsible citizen.
I believe: that each individual is important in his or her own right; therefore, I will treat each person with respect and love.
To this end, I dedicate my training, my skills and myself to serve others through Health Occupations Students of America.
