The R.A Gapuz Review Center (RAGRC) started in 1994 in Dagupan City, Pangasinan. It was a corporation duly registered by the government and was founded by Ray A. Gapuz, RN, MAN, a Filipino nurse and a topnotcher in the Philippine Nursing Licensure Exams.

During that time, the RAGRC was able to find niche as sole provider of the most effective, non- traditional review in this part of the country. Garnering a 100% passing rate in the first batch of reviewees, the company was able to position itself as one of the best nursing review centers in the Philippines and expand to conduct review programs in countries like the Ireland, India, Indonesia and Dubai, UAE.

 

Business Accreditations as a Legitimate Review Center in the Philippines:

  • OCTOBER 1995 – The Commission on Higher Education (CHED), Office of the President granted R. A. Gapuz Review Center accreditation permit to conduct CGFNS review for nurses. This milestone brings to light the expansion of the center’s scope in the provision of review for nurse’s licensure examination.
  • JANUARY 6, 1997 – From partnership, the institution was converted to a corporation and was duly-registered at the Securities and Exchange Commission.
  • JANUARY 21, 1997 – The Professional Regulation Commission granted a certificate of accreditation to R. A. Gapuz Review Center as a provider of continuing programs to nurses.
