Virginia originally obtained her nursing training in the Philippines, and then began her career in Canada as a Licensed Practical Nurse nine years ago. She remains very active and current in her profession working as a Care Coordinator in a seniors’ residence.

She joined the Drake Medox College team as a Health Care Assistant Program instructor to share her experience and knowledge, and to mentor students to become compassionate, competent and conscientious caregivers.

Success Story

Since completing the Health Care Assistant training course at Drake Medox College, I have gained the necessary knowledge, training, skills and confidence to work effectively with the elderly, children and people with developmental disabilities. I believe this course has helped pave the way for greater job opportunities and I since successfully been hired both as a live-in Manager and as a Life Skill Worker. Thank you so much Drake Medox College.
