Interestingly enough, I received this message on Facebook from Ada, “Please is there any word limit for incident report writing for CELBAN test?” Both of you asked this question connected to the same Dear Kim post!
Today I texted one of My Nurses. Not only did she take CELBANPrep courses online with me, I actually hired her and trained her up as a CELBANPrep Writing Coach. So, not only is she a reliable source, she knows what I am about, what we taught, and how we taught it.
Her reply was, “I remember the CELBAN Readiness Self Assessment Kit (the book the library has) mentions writing a report of 100-200 words.”
What this is doing is telling you that there is a limit, and the expectations are quite short. In all reality how much can a person feasibly write in a matter of 15 minutes? And, if it is a skilled writer who completed CELBANPrep Wondeful Writing (CELBANPrep GOLD): how much can you write in 10 minutes, allowing for 5 minutes to edit?
- the word count is not important on the CELBAN.
- IELTS vocabulary is not important.
- the medical information is not important.
What is important on the CELBAN is:
grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, medical collocations, and flow.
That is why CELBANPrep has a 2 pronged approach:
Step ONE: Grammar Essentials (CELBANPrep Silver) with a focus on grammar, advanced punctuation, and sentence structure.
Step TWO: CELBANPrep Wonderful Writing (CELBANPrep GOLD) with a focus on test-taking strategies and Writing Task 1 and 2.
This two-pronged approach has been successful for hundreds of Internationally Educated Nurses from around the world.

This step-by-step process is effective because it allows you to develop one skill set at a time: skills that you will integrate into everything you ever write from here on out!
Communication skills are very valuable to invest in developing!
As for my Writing Coach, she confirmed to me, without disclosing anything about the exam: according to her experience with the exam, there is nothing I need to modify in my training process. CELBANPrep Bronze, Silver, or GOLD available through CELBANPrep University are trustworthy and reliable. But, please do not take this as your final word: do your due diligence.
Thanks, again, for your question.
