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
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
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.
With regards, L

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!
If you read the post CRNBC: New application process for Internationally Educated Nurses posted on Monday, 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.
