The model, introduced by a Filipino doctor from Fresno, California, Dr. Johnny Fong, halves the nursing course from four to an intensive two-year trimester-system based on a US-designed curriculum. The shortened course awards a US diploma, offers a US board exam, and facilitates quick issuance of a US visa via an affiliate school in Saipan, a US protectorate. What more can you ask?
The student takes a 20-month course at the Saint Ignatius Health Science College in Quezon City, then stays four months in the University of Loyola (UOL) in Saipan. He or she can be in California or New York working as a registered nurse within 18 months after taking and passing the US nursing board exams.
