When the company first began looking at Thailand we saw it was a country that is very positive to business and healthcare
Beverly Hills, CA, USA (PRWEB) January 24, 2009
VisionQwest Resource Group, Inc. has begun to expand its review center operations by opening review centers in Makati City, Philippines and in Bangkok, Thailand. The review center in the Philippines has started their review services in the area of NCLEX-RN for nurses wanting to obtain United States nursing licenses, IELTS for English language requirements for immigration. Other review courses will also cover CGFNS and TOEFL. The focus of the review centers is to focus on providing quality fast paced review courses to enhance the foreign nursing professional with the ability to pass their licensing and any immigration requirements to work in the United States and other countries. Other review courses will be added to help other professions pass testing requirements.
The VisionQwest review center in Makati City, Philippines will be expanded in mid-year 2009 to the Province of Bulacan to support nursing schools in that region of the country. The review centers are using the best training technologies for intense fast paced review sessions and practice testing software applications to help the nurses pass their tests with higher efficiency. The Makati, Philippines review facility now employs ten MD/RN review trainers and a full time IT department to maintain the systems on a daily basis. The vision of the review centers is to maintain quality review sessions and provide professional services. February registration for review classes have already started and the review staff have prepared solid review schedules running from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. each day.
Each of the Philippine review sessions is twenty-six (26) days with review instructors who are all Medical Doctors, Philippine licensed nurses and United States licensed nurses. The twenty-six (26) day review session also comes with a four (4) day Power Pack review session that will help the nurse right before going in for testing. Nurses are also able to just sign up for the Power Pack review session instead of the full package of twenty-six (26) days and the four (4) day Power Pack session. Quality review sessions will also review the ethics and quality of nursing required by the industry in the United States and other countries. All foreign review staff is reviewed by review staff in the corporate office in Los Angeles, California. Close Circuit Television cameras are in each class room so the United States review managers can monitor all review sessions and provide quality control corrections to make the review sessions better.
The Philippine review facility has also started a program to train nurses in "Skilled Nursing Facility Specialist - Geriatrics Nursing". This is a 14 month training program to review all of the regulations of working in a skilled nursing facility in the United States. It teaches them how to work with state and federal regulators, medication, the rights of the patient, and other issues that nurses face on a daily basis in facilities. The training program is designed for nurses to go to the United States for a fourteen month period, take a 14 month training program in the US review center and on the floor of a facility, and cover study material taught by a RN specialized in geriatrics nursing. At the end of the 14 month process they then are required to go back to the Philippines and teach in the review center to nurses who have passed NCLEX, have a working petitioner in the United States, and assigned to a skilled nursing facility in California.
By middle of the second quarter of 2009 VisionQwest will open a full NCLEX-RN review and English language learning center in Bangkok, Thailand. All of the legal requirements are being completed to comply with Thailand laws, office and training space has already been retained. This facility will cover the country of Thailand and all provinces, as well as the countries of Burma, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos. The focus of the Thailand center will be to focus on the English language schools of highly trained and qualified nurses. Thailand has become the hub of healthcare in Asia and VisionQwest respects this reputation, the company will also fulfill the need for English and NCLEX-RN review sessions for Thailand nurses wanting to go to the United States to work. "When the company first began looking at Thailand we saw it was a country that is very positive to business and healthcare" stated Michael Lodge, President and CEO of VisionQwest Resource Group, Inc.
