Former singer-actress Carol Banawa finishes summa cum laude at a nursing school in the United States. 

Former singer-actress Carol Banawa graduated summa cum laude at a nursing school in the United States yesterday, May 12 (U.S. Time).

This was announced by Carol's friend David Cosico on Facebook on May 11.

Carol, who is Claire Crisostomo in real life, is already a licensed practical nurse after finishing her associates degree in nursing.

In an exclusive interview with (Philippine Entertainment Portal) published in November 2017, she first announced that she is graduating this May 2018.

She also mentioned taking the board exams, and eventually pursuing a master's degree.

The former ASAP singer said, "I am graduating in May 2018, getting my Associates Degree in Nursing and then taking the boards after that, then moving on to finishing my Bachelor's and continuing on to a Master's Degree. That is the plan."

On May 11, Carol posted on Instagram her graduation cap, which was filled with embedded letters.

She wrote, "#graduationcap Thanks to my Ate Cherry’s creativity. Ready for the march on Saturday"


Carol became famous for interpreting songs such as "Iingatan Ka," "Stay," and "Tanging Yaman."

She was also the lead actress in the prime-time series Bituin (2002), starring Nora Aunor, Desiree del Valle, and Cherie Gil.

In 2003, Carol left show business to seek medical care for her ailing father in the U.S.

Eventually, she worked as a nurse, and settled down.

Meanwhile, the 37-year-old mom's Bituin love-team partner Josh Santana is now a licensed doctor.

The former singer shared the good news in March 2018 when he passed the Physician Licensure Examination.
