>Thanks for the information. However I am in Kenya and seems like the only way to take this is when am in Canada. Well i can only come there when i have a job offer. IELTS is just next door to me, i think I would do that. Thanks anyway for your help.
- a score required for immigration,
- a score required for a nursing license.
NOTE: Colleges of Nursing in Canada require the Academic version of IELTS. Once you get an acceptable score you can apply with the colleges and start your documentation process. It can be advantageous to get to this documentation stage from home, before immigrating. Many people have found it easier to get their employers/ nursing registration body/ schools to complete forms in a timely fashion when there. It can take a lot longer if you are trying to communicate and have things happen when you are away from home.
If you were in Canada, however, I would recommend taking the CELBAN because it really is the easiest English exam for nurses in Canada! Also, if you are coming to Canada within the year, I would also recommend the CELBAN. With plenty of time to practice and review while at home, you will save time by being prepared to take the exam soon after you land.
I hope this helps!
