3G I would like to ask about writing and speaking if you can give me free prep.

Dear Kim,
You are of great help. I would like to ask about writing and speaking if you can give me free prep… I hope to hear from you and I started doing the reading and listening prep and making a good job on it.
Sincerely,

Maria

Dear Maria,

How to Prepare for CELBAN Contains 5 Books:

  • Introduction to the CELBAN
  • CELBAN Reading Practice Exams
  • CELBAN Writing Study Guide
  • CELBAN Listening Practice Exams
  • CELBAN Speaking Study Guide

For reading and listening you get practice exams, which are actually from an older version of CELBANPrep. For writing and speaking you get study guides. The reason for the difference is because I continually had people asking me what the difference was between a study guide and the practice exams. Also, getting both packages allows people to better understand the differences in CELBANPrep between the the courses for writing and speaking, and the sample tests for reading and listening. These differences are based on whether a person studies independently (reading and listening) or with one-on-one interaction with a teacher in a course (writing and speaking).

For CELBANPrep Writing and CELBANPrep Speaking the lessons and assignments focus on preparing for different task on the exam. For instance there are four tasks for CELBAN Speaking, so for CELBANPrep there are four lessons: one for each task. It is not possible to give you free preparation for speaking (or writing) for two reasons:

  1. four tasks can not be taught in less time than in four lessons for speaking and eight lessons in writing,
  2. preparing for these task require a teacher who must be paid, in the same way you as a nurse must be paid.

Maria, I have done the best than I can to provide free resources. While I have priced CELBANPrep equal to classes for other similar courses, unlike those courses I offer sales twice a month.

At the end of the day, Maria, you have a decision to make: are you worth the investment in yourself? By investing in yourself, by taking prep classes, you are investing in your future. By investing in yourself you are saving both time and money so that when you take the CELBAN you are both prepared and confident. With this confidence you will perform to the best of your ability. I can not guarantee that you pass, because that depends on how much you practice and how well you do, but I can guarantee that you feel more confident and prepared than if you go into the exam without a prep class, so that you walk out of that exam feeling proud of yourself instead of insecure like other people.

C0UP0NSmAt the end of the day you save money, because you are prepared and perform to the best of your ability on the exam. You save time, because you are not wasting any of your three attempts at the CELBAN. You only have three attempts, and your score will expire in two years so you need to have one chance available when it does expire. So really you only have two chances. Taking the exam without preparation, for many, is like throwing away a chance.

At the end of the day taking a prep class allows you to progress in your licensure process faster than if you are walking on this path alone.

At the end of the day you need to decide which path to take; you need to decide if you are a worthy investment. Your family believes you are. The question is do you think you are?

I wish you the very best in your process, Maria.

Sincerely,

Kim

  1. hi could you please tell me about Kim.who’s she? i really want to do my celban for canada.i am going to write my exam in jan 2013.please help me.

    • Dear Meena,

      Great Question! I have never been asked this before. My name is Kim. I have a Bachelor in Science and a Master in Education. When I was doing my Master degree I got a job working in the employment center on campus. I learned that I loved teaching people about career topics, and I enjoyed working in career development. After graduating I worked at an employment centre with professional immigrants, including nurses. That was when I began teaching a preparation class that eventually became CELBANPrep. CELBANPrep had had 4 versions, each one getting better. I have worked with thousands of nurses, each with a one-on-one element.
      January 2013 is a great goal. You have lots of time to prepare. But don’t delay. It will be here before you know it. Please consider CELBANPrep. for more information go to http://www.celbanprep.info.

      Have a great day, Meena!
      Kim

  2. Dear Maria
    I have been a student of Kim. I can only say one thing, investing on the celban course online is and will be one of the best investments you can make for yourself. Kim is a phenomenal teacher, further more she goes the extra mile to be there for her students. I , just like you, was very reluctant to enroll for celban online, but in the end I have gained so very much. Please give your self the chance. The courses online are reasonably priced and worth every penny. I pray to god that he will guide you onto the right path.
    best wishes.ps: A LITTLE BIT OF INVESTMENT GOES A LONG LONG WAY.

    • Dear Rieds,

      Your support for other Internationally Educated Nurses and for me with CELBANPrep is … can you believe it I can not find the words! It is so wonderful to know that someone really understands what I am doing and is willing to take the time to support me in doing so by letting other IENs know about your experience. People reading your comments may wonder if you are being paid to make these comments. What makes reading your comments so touching is knowing that you are not being paid but choose to write these comments to others who are trying to decide whether they should take the risk, or not, in taking CELBANPrep.

      I am so grateful to you, Rieds.

      Sincerely,
      Kim
