CELBAN Preparation in the 🇺🇲 US, the 🇬🇧UK and 🇦🇺 Australia

Written 2021

Dear Friends,

The changes to the CELBAN, now that there is an online Computer Based Test, the CBT, have created ripples going outward.

  • Now that the CELBAN is available online…
  • Now that the CELBAN is available internationally…
  • Now that you are able to take the CELBAN more than 3 times…

Changes are happening at CELBANPrep as well. All 400 posts on Dear Kim are being updated. While updating posts like:

I have also been updating all the posts about CELBAN online courses, CELBAN online classes and CELBAN material.

But what I realized, is that although so many people come to Dear Kim to learn about the CELBAN and CELBAN preparation, only one IEN wrote me from the US, asking me about the LPN process. And, only one wrote to me asking how to prepare for the CELBAN from the UK.

So, despite the 400 articles, none answer questions for people located in the USA! Only one was written for IENs in the UK! I am about to change that!

CELBAN Preparation in 🇮🇱 Israel and Internationally

Updated 2021

 

Hello, Dear Kim! I’ve never met you, but your words touched my heart deeply! I know that the immigration process isn’t easy, I am going to pass it one more time. The first my time was  from Bulgaria to Israel in 1997,we were a young family with two little children, without money,language, suitable professions. Now we are more clever, because of our age and experience, we have good professions, my husband is a pastry chef, both our children grew ,aged 23 and 19 and recently they have helped us to make the decision to immigrate again. Living in Canada is an old our dream, unfortunately it was not possible to realise for several reasons. Now I prepare both language,  English – I passed the IELTS exam with the scores:7, 5.5, 4.5 and 4.5, accordingly in speaking, writing, listening and reading and French, that I’ve learned at the high school and recently with a private teacher. I want to pass the CELBAN exam as soon as possible in order to achieve the required scores to my nursing license. Despite my aged, 47, I am full energy to bring my family to our deemed country, Canada. Tank you for your inspiring in me, I hope we will continue to be in touch. Have a nice day, Kim! Sincerely yours, I

Good morning. ..Thank you very much for the reply regarding CELBAN.
I am currently residing in Abudhabi, U.A.E since last 8yrs, working as Registered Nurse in OR, in one the reputed hospitals in U.A.E.
Basically l am from the Southern  part of India, Kerala. I hold the Canadian PR from 2010.But I stayed there in CA, only for a sum of 2-3 months.Actually Abudhabi is my first stop outside India.

I tried IELTS few times,after having the coaching class in India in 2004.Recently I received an IELTS score of overall 7.0(L-7.5, R-6.5, W-7,S-6.5).Unfortunately for CNO, they need a 7.0 band in speaking.

I will be relocated in March.I successfully completed the CRNE.[Now the NCLEX is required.]  For the process of registration completion, l need either IELTS/CELBAN.

I have done the free self assessment for the CELBAN, (R-8 and L-9).So I need further assistance in CELBAN preparation. How can I register myself for the CELBAN prep? Is there any form to be filled out?
I need a positive reply before the offer expires.

Thank you again and expecting a reply as early as possible.

CELBANPrep Available in Japan 🇯🇵 and 100 Countries!!!

Update 2021

Dear Friends,

Did you know that since 2009 CELBANPrep has been available, in Japan and 100 other countries?

If you are in Japan, considering taking the CELBAN so that you can become a licensed or registered nurse in Canada, there are several posts that will get you started.

This article is written in a question and answer format:

  • Where do I start?
  • What is NNAS?
  • Should I take the CELBAN before applying to NNAS?
  • Should I take the CELBAN or the IELTS?
  • Do you have online CELBAN courses, online CELBAN classes, and CELBAN material?
  • What else should I know about preparing for the CELBAN outside of Canada?

May you find the solid and reliable, trustworthy, source you are looking for!

Sincerely,

Kim


Where do I start?

There are two reliable sources for information about the CELBAN and the process of becoming a nurse in Canada. 

“STEP ONE: Contact the CELBAN official Website. Check out the website of the CELBAN Centre (www.celbancentre.ca) to get test information. This is the CELBAN official website, adminstered by Touchstone

“STEP TWO: Learn more from the NNAS ==> Go to the National Nursing Assessment Service (www.nnas.ca/) website to get answers to the question:What is the passing score for nurses on the CELBAN?”

from the CELBAN Help Centre @ www.celban.info

What is NNAS?

The National Nursing Assessment Services was founded in August of 2014. Before that time Internationally Educated Nurses applied to individual provincial Colleges of Nursing to start their documentation process. So, at that time there was a great deal of duplication. And, it became challenging for IENs who moved from one province to another. 

With NNAS the entire documentation process for all of the colleges of nursing, for all of the provinces, for both registered nurses and licensed nurses is completed by one organization. 

This makes it much easier for you.

Should I take the CELBAN before applying to NNAS?

This is a question that comes up quire regularly. So, I have written the answer in several posts. Each is for a different person, so each post has a different perspective and the information shared is different in each post. See: NNAS first?

Should I take the CELBAN or the IELTS?

This is another commonly asked question that has been answered in many different ways. See: CELBAN or IELTS?

Do you have online CELBAN courses, online CELBAN classes, and CELBAN material?

The answer is, “Yes!”

Because CELBANPrep was first created over ten years ago, in 2009, ample resources have been created. This includes: 

  • CELBAN online courses: textbooks, workbooks, lesson plans, and the like.
  • CELBAN online classes: small groups that get together on a regular basis to practice skills taught during the online courses.
  • CELBAN intensives: CELBAN online courses, classes and material that helps people to decrease the amount of time it takes to prepare for the CELBAN.
  • CELBAN material: quizzes, handouts, assigments to practice skills required to pass the CELBAN.
  • CELBAN reviewers: e-books, websites, blog posts, updates that expose IENs to the format and structure – expectations – of the CELBAN.

It took time, but now CELBANPrep University has the most extensive library of resouces available to you, at various price points, to assist you in preparing for the CELBAN no matter where you are in the world!

CELBAN in Japan?

The beautful thing about CELBANPrep Publishing, is that several CELBAN courses and CELBAN intensives have been available through Amazon.jp. 

NOTE:

While CELBANPrep Publishing provides books (textbooks and workbooks) for our CELBAN courses, the accompanying CELBAN videos are available through CELBANPrep University.

Where do I start with CELBANPrep?

This is another question that I am asked quite often, by Internationally Educated Nurses like you. With so many options, it is sometimes difficult for IENs to figure out where to start. This post shares ample information about where to start and how to prepare for the CELBAN

What else should I know about preparing for the CELBAN outside of Canada?

Several posts have been written about preparing for the CELBAN, internationally. You may benefit from reading these posts as well.

There is even a tag: https://dear-kim.com/tag/celban-preparation-internationally

I hope that this post gives you some clarity and understing both about the process of becoming a registered nurse in Canada, but also the steps to take in preparing for the CELBAN exam. 

Sincerely,

Kim

ARNPEI: Internationally Educated Registered Nurse Applicants

Updated 2021

Dear Friend,

By now you should be pretty saturated with all the information about the licensure process, NNAS and the provincial licensure bodies. I know I am. In this process of doing all this research I think I have a pretty good handle on what is happening when it comes to the process of becoming a nurse in Canada. Mind you, I have also learned that it is not easy to find this information on the websites of the provincial colleges of nursing. It is certainly not on the front page, and often I have had to enter several search terms to find anything. That is what happened when I came to the Association of Registered Nurses of PEI. But with the persistence I have learned from you, IENs, I persisted. Alas I found their notifications and a PDF. If you have been reading along for the past week, then this will be a solidifying review. If you have not, or are in PEI, or are thinking of going to PEI here you are!

NOTE: This post was written in August of 2014, at the inception of the National Nursing Assessment Service. Prior to that time IENs had to provide documentation to provincial colleges of nursing. Since 2014 the documentation process, the assessment process, has been centralized through NNAS. Thus, while some of this information may be dated, and links have changed with updates to websites, the information and insights you gain may still be valuable to you so that you can understand the process better.

CRNNS: Enhanced IEN Application Process

Updated 2021

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

Dear Friends,

If you read the post CRNBC: New application process for Internationally Educated Nurses posted on Monday (2014), then you saw an excellent graphic explaining the licensure process to become an RN in BC. There I wrote about how the steps for NNAS are universal, but the steps for each provincial college is different. On Tuesday I wrote about the Criteria for Registration and Licensure for IENs in Nova Scotia. In this post it is clearly evident that the provincial registration processes have been legislated by law: provincial not federal law. Today I will be sharing the Enhanced IEN Application Process from CRNNS in Nova Scotia. The CRNNS, like the CRNBC, has provided a graphic that transparently outlines the process of becoming a nurse in Nova Scotia.
