Alzheimer and stroke are the names of diseases, why I can use the capital letter for the former, but for the latter I can not use it?
What do you think?
I was talking with one of my nurses, who is taking both the Secrets to Success and Wonderful Writing. When I asked her to review the Grammar Essentials she said, “I have not thought about grammar since I was in elementary school. (Around 9 and 10.) ”
I smiled. The Grammar Essentials series I have created is one of the secrets to success on the CELBAN! And yet so many Internationally Educated Nurses pass it by.
“Grammar!” they think. “What does that have to do with the CELBAN?”
Obviously they are not trusting the 10+ years of experience I have, having taught hundreds and thousands of nurses from across Canada and around the world!
Why would I waste time – one entire year – creating the lessons, modules, workbooks, videos, graphics and sequencing?
- Because there is a need.
- Because it works!
- Because increasing your score in writing, speaking and reading depends on your ability, knowledge and competencies on what the CLB/CELBAN people call, “Grammatical Knowledge” within the sphere of “Organizational Knowledge.”
So, dear friend, brush up on your Grammar with this course, and you will be improving your communication skills both when creating communication and interpreting what you read and hear!
That brings us back to the question, “If both Alzheimer and stroke are both diseases: why is one capitalized and the other is not?”
The answer to this is covered in Volume #1: Nouns & Articles when we explore proper and common nouns before learning how to triage when to use articles a/an, the, and zero articles!
There are two components to this course:
- Purchase the workbook from Amazon, then
