About the School
MARLON RAY G. LABAGNOY, the founder and president of the No. 1 Review Center in South East Asia is proud to recall how he started to get involved in the nursing review activities while he was in Dammam Central Hospital, Dammam, Saudi Arabia.
As a Filipino nurse, he was encouraged to give lectures to nurses who were off duty and tried giving them review tips on how to successfully pass the CGFNS. This gesture of helping them made a very good result as those who listened to his lectures passed the exam. The result made quite an impact affecting his future plans.
He decided to go home to the Philippines and put up a review center. It was on July 28, 1989 at the Poblacion East, Rosario, La Union where this enterprising young man made his humble beginning. An initial 20 nurses attended classes at the living room of his house. These 20 nurses took and passed the CGFNS both Nursing and English exams successfully.
News spread out and nurses from different parts of the country and even as far as the Middle East started to flock to the Northern Luzon area, seeking the help of Uncle Marlon to pass the CGFNS exam and be their ticket to go to America.
Filipino Nurses call him “Diwata ng CGFNS” and truly, he is proven by the thousands of nurses who are deployed at various states of America and they owe their success to Uncle Marlon.
