CT4 – BUSY MOM & DAD: ⏱️ I am from Swift Current [Saskatchewan], I have two jobs… I wanted some [CELBAN] materials to read at home

Hi Kim,

I’m great! I am from Swift Current, came from Philippines about 3 years ago. I just took CELBAN  and I got 9 listening, 8 reading, 6 writing and 7 for speaking. I wanted some review materials to read at home anytime coz I have two jobs it is hard for me to adjust



Dear G,

I am so happy to hear from you. I just got an e-mail from someone in Vancouver, and another from someone in Toronto. They are asking if I have a review center in those locations. For each I wrote that I could have taught in a classroom, but then I would be limited to people in Edmonton. But I knew that there were Internationally Educated Nurses in small towns like Swift Current, where there were even fewer resources than in the big cities like Toronto and Vancouver. I knew that it was much better for me to develop CELBANPrep to be able to give access to people like you, living in small towns in rural Canada in addition to those living in big cities across Canada. And so, I took CELBANPrep from the classroom to the internet in 2009! I have been preparing Internationally Educated Nurses from all over the world and across Canada for over ten years now! I am excited that I am reaching people internationally!

The other reason why I created CELBANPrep, is because all of the IENs I met in Edmonton had schedules like you. Either they were: balancing two jobs, going to school at the same time as working, or working at the same time as raising a family, or simply raising a family. In all variations everyone I met was dedicated to those they loved with very little time for themselves. Creating CELBANPrep allows busy people to fit their preparations for the CELBAN within busy schedules.

And, it is messages like this that have inspired me to expand my offerings to provide the Achieve Your Dreams series. I created two different options for one-on-one coaching. Healing Healers: Wellness & Self Care for Internationally Educated Health Professionals integrates wellness practices that you will take into your career to prevent burnout- which is very common among nurses in Canada.

Heal Healers promotes wellness and self-care one-on-one coaching sessions so that you can maintain your health and wellness at home, at work, and at play.

I created it for my daughter, when she was six years old, to teach her how to take care of her body, her mind, her heart and her spirit: both alone and in community. Since them I have witnessed the majestic transformation in students who experience more energy, executives who discover how to bring their hearts and souls to work, and working moms who learn to balance their lives and competing responsibilities.

I have also begun to coach Internationally Educated Health Professionals, one-on-one with Career and Passion Planning for Internationally Educated Health Professionals as one step towards figuring out what to do with your time, your life, and your career while you engage in the licensure process, which takes time.

Prepare for your exam, live the life you want to live, while sustaining your dreams

So, I am so delighted to get your message!

After getting those two previous e-mails, getting yours made my day! It validated what I have done: making CELBAN preparation available to you in Swift Current, in a way that you can fit it into your schedule while working two jobs.

As for your scores, you have done very well. I will help you to do even better. Make sure you check out the resources listed in the section for Unsuspecting Newcomers to figure out where to start!
