Rona Simsuangco

HEALTH CARE ASSISTANT PROGRAM (HCA)

Rona was a practicing Midwife in the Philippines before immigrating to Canada in 1998. Here she has been a LPN since 2007 working in Acute care in hospital settings, and as a Client Services Supervisor for one of the largest Home Support agencies in BC.

In addition to classroom and clinical instruction, Rona is also a key contributor to the development of Drake Medox College’s Health Care Assistant Program curriculum.

Rona believes that everyone in the classroom is equal, and that learning is a continuous process that is enhanced by the collective experience of both the instructor and the students. She invites her students to share and learn from each other in pursuit of becoming the best HCAs possible!

Success Story

Through my own personal experience I believe I am able to give to others the level of care, compassion and love that was bestowed upon me during my time of need. Drake Medox College has provided me with the greatest opportunity through their Community Support Worker program, with being able 'pay it forward ' and make a difference in this world. Life is about touching the lives of people around us no matter who they are or where they have come from.
