♦ I took IELTS exam 3 times. Then I took Celban. I pass the exam. I am now a LPN

Good afternoon Kim, My name is R, I am one of your student in dear kim. I would like to thank you for all your guidance and support in my writing. Though, I felt so bad whenever I check my writing there were lots colours for corrections- but for this corrections I improved and felt confident in doing an incident report. Honestly, I took IELTS exam 3 times, unfortunately I didn’t meet the score that they were requiring me to reach. Then I took Celban, first attempt I failed. Somehow, you gave me a chance to open my account in your website and from that point I practice and practice until I got the confidence to overcome my fear of writing. Luckily, I got a schedule last Sept…,2013 for CELBAN exam … and I pass the exam. Kim, you put a mark in achieving my nursing career here in Canada. Thank you, R

Congratulations for passing the CELBAN!Dear R, It is so good to hear from you! In reading your message I am so very happy! I am just sitting here with my laptop, smiling! It may have been luck that you sat for the exam in September, but it was not luck that you passed the exam. You passed BECAUSE you practiced and practiced! You turned your weaknesses into strengths. You integrated feedback from your writing coach. You kept working on improving your grammar, and your skills in English in general. Over time, and in seeing your dedication and hard work, I thoroughly enjoyed working with you! It is a pleasure to have been permitted to walk with you on your journeys to becoming a nurse in Canada! In reading your message again your words ring out, “I practice and practice until I got the confidence to overcome my fear of writing.” This is the most wonderful thing to read and to know! I am so very impressed with your ability and desire to overcome your fear, and to gain self mastery and confidence as a result. Maximum performance on any exam can only happen when we gain enough skill and knowledge, which builds confidence, and battles fear and anxiety. And you did it! Oh, R! I am so very very pleased. It truly has been an hounour! Please, please keep in touch and keep me informed about your path, your progress, and your struggles too! You have the keys to success, and I know you will make it; you will obtain your dream of being a nurse in Canada. And when that day comes I will be overwhelmed with joy, remembering that I knew you would make it. While there are many IENs from across the world coming to or living in Canada, you have the special combination of skills, talents and character that will bring you success where others might fail. All the best to you! Sincerely, Kim

Hello Kim, I hope you still remember me. I am R, one of your online student in Celban. Thank you for sharing your ideas on how to do the Celban exam. I took the exam twice but didn’t lose hope, until I pass. And now, I am now a LPN. Thank you for putting a mark in my nursing career. R.


Dear R,

Of course I remember you! I remember your diligence. I remember your gratitude. I remember your work ethic. I remember your willingness to learn. And I remember coming to a certain conclusion, early on, that you would be practicing as a nurse in Canada! I knew that you had it in you to make it happen.

I am so pleased to read the news that you made it. And I am touched that you would find time in your busy and fulfilling life to write to me… that you did not forget me! I feel so blessed and honoured to know you, to have worked with you, and to have been blessed with the opportunity to walk with you along this path!

By taking the time to write you have fed my heart and my soul. You have provided me with the motivation to continue what I am doing in sustaining Internationally Educated Health Professionals, as yourself, to obtain their dreams in Canada.

Have a most beautiful day, and do please keep in touch!
