The number one question Drake Medox College advisors are asked is “will I get a job after graduation?”
We understand that although students may come to us for industry leading training and education, what they really want and expect is a good job after they achieve their diploma.
So, why are Drake Medox Health Care Assistant grads able to secure jobs in the field at a consistent rate of 97%?

All indicators are pointing in the same direction….
I immigrated to Canada with my family in hopes of a seeking a better quality of life. Growing up my parents always encouraged me to seek out higher education to ensure that I could have a bright future. So when my mother graduated from Drake Medox as a Health Care Assistant, she persuaded me to look in to the programs offered at the college. That’s when I stumbled upon the Community Support Worker Program, which sparked my interest. At that time I had no clue what the role of a CSW would entail so I continued to do research and found that many of my prerequisite courses for Psych Nursing correlated with CSW. This interested me because I knew that an investment in this program could help me towards my future career goals.
