The CELBAN (Canadian English Language Benchmark Assessment for Nurses) is a test of English language proficiency for individuals who want to work as healthcare professionals in Canada.
It is specifically designed for internationally educated nurses who want to become registered nurses or licensed practical nurses in Canada. The test assesses an individual’s proficiency in the English language in the context of healthcare, and is used to evaluate an individual’s ability to communicate effectively in the workplace.
The CELBAN is recognized by regulatory bodies and employers in Canada, and is often a requirement for obtaining licensure and practicing as a healthcare professional in the country.
NOTE: While the CELBAN has been created specifically for Internationally Educated Nurses, this assessment can also be used by other health care professionals seeking to practice in the medical field in Canada. While your regulatory body may not accept a CELBAN score, taking the CELBAN, and getting feedback on your writing and speaking skills, can assist you in increasing your scores on the IELTS.
