Hi, my apology if i haven’t get back to you right away, quite busy these days. By the way, i’m from the philippines and a registered nurse there. However, I ‘m currently working in singapore as an enrolled nurse. and i’m processing my papers to migrate in canada unfortunately, the visa application has been hold.
Anyway, before stepping into canada i am doing research on how to apply as a registered nurse. IELTS is one of the requirements and actually I have tried many times in academic for ielts but i can’t make it and there is an option which is the CELBAN ( hope this will suit me).
I hope I can gain some information about this coz i don’t have any idea on this and will pass the exam on the appointed time.
Thanks for having this program for free. God bless
Welcome! It is great that you contacted me from Singapore before migrating to Canada. Although your process has been postponed, I encourage you to see it as a gift of time. While many people begin preparing for their licensure process to become a nurse in Canada once they land, it really is best to start the process and do as much as possible from overseas: especially when it comes to the English Proficiency exams.
Doing as much as you can to improve your skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking when it comes to grammar, accuracy, speed and vocabulary are so very important.
When it comes to the Canadian culture that will have to wait until you land.
This is a list of what is available on Amazon through CELBANPrep:
- CELBANPrep Speaking
- CELBANPrep Writing Level One
- CELBAN or IELTS: Grammar Essentials
- CELBANPrep Writing Level Two
NOTE: There are two parts to these CELBAN Courses:
- CELBANPrep University provides the learning and teaching videos.
- CELBANPrep Publishing provides the textbooks and workbooks through Amazon’s 12 national sites.
- Check out Shop CELBAN Preparation Books
Preparing for the CELBAN Internationally
Life as an immigrant in Canada can be especially stressful, without the supports of family at home, many people struggle with managing time to be able to study. I honestly believe that preparing for an English exam while making a good wage, where you are, surrounded by the support of friends and family is a smoother path than trying to so the same while making minimum wage in Canada and dealing with the heartache and loneliness of homesickness ~ even if it is not one’s first home.
I have written a to others, who have contacted me from overseas. I encourage you to read what they wrote, and my replies to them. I believe that many of your questions will be answered in this way.

CELBAN vs IELTS
As for the question about the CELBAN or IELTS, I get that asked often. You can read what I have written here: CELBAN or IELTS. Also, checkout the resources that I have created to help you to prepare regardless of which exam you take: The CELBAN or IELTS Series. There are so many people that can’t decide what to do, so now there is material available so that you can study both at once!
As for becoming more familiar with the CELBAN exam,
Though Amazon, CELBANPrep is actually available in 100 countries: including the Singapore, Hong Kong, SAR and more!
There are four easy steps:
- Verify that your nation is listed among the 100 Amazon serves.
- Get your Amazon Shopping App
- Get Your Kindle App
- Make a Purchase
Since 2009, CELBANPrep has been available internationally.
In 2009, when I created CELBANPrep, I went online before anyone else did so that I could provide CELBAN courses, CELBAN classes, and CELBAN material to Internationally Educated Nurses living in rural parts of Canada without the resources of the big cities.
I also created CELBANPrep online so that people like you, could prepare for the CELBAN from wherever you are in the world.
That is how and why I became an expert in the field. With over 10 years of experience, teaching hundreds of nurses from around the world and living across Canada.
My Hope for You
Although you have a busy schedule, I hope you will take time to read the articles provided. Then, I hope you will consider taking your gift of time and preparing as much as you can from where you are. Using CELBANPrep courses available through Amazon while there in Singapore is a great way to start!
