2G* How I learned to write CELBAN reports in 20 minutes!

Hi Kim,

Thank you so much. Admittedly, I really had a hard time with this first incident report. It took me more than 20 minutes since I felt blocked mentally. I was away from the hospital set-up for over a year now. But, I tried creating more reports to refresh my memory and the rest sailed smoothly in terms of timing. I’m glad that I am doing fine — thanks to you. =)
Sincerely, J

2G* How to Create an Outline for an Incident Report in 5 minutes for CELBAN Writing

Update 2021

Dear Friends,

How long does it take you to mind map or brainstorm a comprehensive list of details to add into an incident report? 

I want you to do that:

  • Take out your computer or a piece of paper and a pen.
  • Set a timer. 
  • Start brainstorming/mind mapping as many details as you can think of to write in an incident report. 

Here is the writing prompt.

When you are done, come back to this post.

600 Should headache, earache or sore throat be singular or plural when writing a report for CELBAN Writing Task 2?

Updated 2021

Dear Friend,

In writing about Henoch Schonlein Purpura, an IEN with a family history with this disease wrote:

Symptomes of this disease are purpuric rashes all over the body, joint pain and cold like symptoms like headache, sorethroat and earache.

Noticing that headache, sore throat and earache were singular I asked, ” Do you understand why earaches and sore throats are plural?”

She replied, “I did research on, why do we use earaches or sore throats?  But I could not find the reason. So, can you please explain that to me? Thank you.

1G* How can I practice CELBAN speaking with [CELBANPrep]?

Dear KIM
I don’t know how to leave the comment ,, so I choose to leave here ;) sorry;
I am an one of the desperate international nurses who need celban score.
I tried IELTS couple of times, but my writing was never getting better.. and I am a terrible writer in my first language as well.
I was almost frustrated,,but I found hope in the CELBAN..
And I was one comment about a nurse who took ielts 7times(?) and success CELBAN..
I am living in Toronto where has no celban prep school.
so I was about to apply in Vancouver,, but I have to spend too much extra money for accommodation…etc..However I thought that plan because of speaking…
To practice speaking , I thought I have meet people..
but I guess this site has only online class, don’t you?
How can I practice speaking with this ? I am an Asian,, I am very weak at speaking and writing. I couldn’t find any solution yet..
If you can help and I don’t have to go to Vancouver, I would be very happy TT
I am planning to take test either Oct or Nov..
I prefer Oct than Nov though..
If I study with you, what month is appropriate ?
Please reply me. I am willing to do everything I can do to get a score.
Thank you, Jane

♥ Dreams for you

Dear Friend,

There are times when I work on the computer, that I listen to music. I was just listening to the song Dreams for You, by Susan Aglukark reading a comment by a subscriber to CELBANPrep Writing. She had taken the CELBAN, and failed the writing section. Now with the help of a Writing Coach during the Writing Tutoring she has improved in her ability to write detailed reports in 20 minutes.  After reading one assignment I asked, “So how did that go? Was it comparable to writing for the exam? How was your timing?”

She replied

Yes, it’s really like the one in the exam.

HOPE !! I PASSED the CELBAN… without taking CELBANPrep, I would have definitely failed.

Dear Kim,


I got my Celban Result..  “I PASSED…” I am soo happy.. I am sure that, if I went for the exam without taking CelbanPrep, I would have definitely failed. I remember your words to another candidate.. for every success, ‘God’s grace, your help and my effort should be there’.. Yes I follow that and I got it… Thank you so much Kim, I have no words to express my feelings.. Group calling helped me to understand a lot..  Your one on one consultant was excellent.. and that gave me confidence to face the exam,,, writing section was awesome, I read others’ writings and the way you, Dia and Reids corrected it, thank you so much Dia for supporting me. I haven’t get any chance to meet Reids.. As you may know, this was my crucial time, and my work permit is expired.
This was one of my best decisions
I have ever made in my life
..and you will always be in my mind as one of my favorite teachers, I dont know how you look, but I have a beautiful picture of you in my mind.. I recommend this Celban Prep to all nurses who want to become a Canadian nurse…  Once again thank you so much for your support and help.. Thanking You.
Your Sincerely,
S
