Thank you for the message.
I am a Japanese, and have been here for almost 3 years….
I have been working at a … facility as an RN since last July. Registration process was completed with IELTS scores… Right now I am trying to get a job at a hospital. CELBAN scores help me to take clinical course at an university, therefore I have decided to take CELBAN test which I have never taken.
That is some of my information. I really appreciate to receive the Study Guide and Practice Exams from you.
Without your help I do not know what to prepare for CELBAN.
Since CRNBC has altered English tests to accept and increased the English scores, a large number of people started taking CELBAN test. However, the frequency of the exam dates has not be changed.
I probably write the exam this autumn. Are you aware of current situation regarding CELBAN exam?
Thank you so much.K
Congratulations! It is an honor to meet someone who has accomplished so much. And yet to have a desire to continue your education beyond is impressive. Have you thought about pursuing a Master in Nursing? This is required for you to be a teacher. Or you can further your education and become a Nurse Practitioner.
I am curious, which university requires or accepts the CELBAN? Most require the TOEFL.
I am certain, with you already practicing, that you will do well on the exam. I have worked with others who are already practicing in Canada, and their work experience really helps when it comes to writing reports, for CELBAN Writing, and interviewing patients for CELBAN Speaking. Still, they are wise in that they have sought some guidance and assistance to use both their time and money well.
Yes, I have learned that getting a seat for the CELBAN exam can be difficult as the frequency of exams has gone down in some places. Other places have seats filled well in advance. So it is true, while the scores have gone up the availability of exams do not seem to fill the demand. I have a client in BC who registered in November, and was anticipating writing last month or this month and has yet to get a seat. I have others who travel to other provinces to take exams there, incurring a greater expense. So it is good to prepare early, and register when you are confident.
Does this help?
