Raquel Alvela

HCA: CLINICAL INSTRUCTOR

Raquel achieved her Bachelors of Science in Physical Therapy in the Philippines before immigrating to Canada. She began her career here as a live-in caregiver and didn’t waste any time re-establishing herself within BC’s Healthcare system. Graduating as class valedictorian from Drake Medox College’s HCA program, and then from her LPN program with a Distinction Award, she is clearly a very focused and driven professional!

Raquel believes her purpose in life is to care for the most vulnerable members of our society including elders. Through her role as a Clinical Instructor for the HCA program, she is able to inspire and train her students to adopt the skills and confidence they will need to provide holistic, client-centred care. Her goal is to impart an appreciation for the important work they will do, and the importance of accountability and teamwork.

She invites anyone who is interested to take the HCA program not to delay, for as she says “it is never too late to pursue your dreams.” It takes a lot of courage and determination, but as evidenced by Raquel’s own personal journey, it is worth all the sacrifices in the end!

Success Story

I credit my success in finding work straight after I had graduated to their positive training environment and the very supportive staff at Drake Medox. It is from my experience at Drake Medox that I would definitely recommend them to all my family and friends. Thank you Drake Medox College for making my dream of becoming a healthcare assistant come true! I am very happy with all that I've managed to achieve so far and feel I have a bright future ahead!
