What Grads Say

  • The program prepared us very well to become responsible, accountable and professional health care assistants. Our instructors couldn't have stressed more on the importance of these characteristics. Recently I had the opportunity to advocate on behalf of one of my residents, because I realized she wasn't receiving attention for a basic need she expressed to me. I was confident I was doing the right thing and, because I had done it professionally, I was so happy to see a positive change only few weeks after my intervention.

    Capilano has a very good instructors that prepared us for the real job. It was an awesome experience and it helped me become a confident HCA based on the knowledge and practice I received from Capilano.

    I was very well prepared. From my first day at work I felt very confident, thanks to the experience we acquired during the practicum. And whenever I face a challenging situation, I always refer to the program and recall the best course of action I can take in the given circumstances.

    The HCA program at Capilano University blew away all of my expectations. The instructors were all fantastic; and instilled in us a level of care and work ethic that is clearly recognized by employers across the Lower Mainland. In addition to the skills necessary for this new career path, the HCA course provided me with self-care and communication skills that are invaluable for every day life. I would recommend both this career path and institution to anyone who wants to work in health care and be involved in the day-to-day life with seniors.

    I have to reiterate how comprehensive and wonderfully laid out the Capilano University HCA program is. I felt totally confident, competent and able to just jump right in and give care to residents at Evergreen.

    I made the right decision to take the HCA program at Capilano University. Not only was the training really great, but the instructors were really amazing and knowledgeable as well. The program also helped the students to apply and get a job offer even before they graduate which is incredible!
