Hello again! First of all, i want to say thank you for all the support you have given me despite the fact that i was not able to become an active student that time. My first experience to take the CELBAN early this year still went smooth despite my tremendous lack of self confidence and time ( as i described to you my condition before). Kim i got 8 for speaking, 10 for listening, 9 for reading…..BUT a very huge BUT only 6 for writing. The result was fine at first because i tried to console my self that i could just try LPN and not go for RN anymore for when i got my result that was the time that CLPN in our province were accepting applicants with some differences in the English assessment results. After 6 months CLPN approved me for CCA but they still want me to update my English result. That was the time that my heart shattered because first, i tried to settle for less than what i dream to become; second was that the next available spot for CELBAN is March ; third, i din’t know anymore how to approach the writing and lastly, i will have to be retested again for listening. Its just recently that i managed to forgive myself and forego of the wrong decisions that i made. From this moment , my experience made me more matured in approaching my goal. I had learned another life lesson and now i need to apply it. Kim, with humility, please recommend to me any [reources] for the writing and listening that you think would be able to help me. Thank you very much for reading my letter. S
Thank you for updating us KIM, sorry that I was not able to get back to you. i am happy to inform you that I passed the CELBAN on my 1st try last March 30, 2014. Thank you for all the help, inspiration and guidance along the way of my studying. So I am doing my assessment now with CLPNBC and CRNBC. Hoping for the best. Goodluck to all and never loose hope, loosers are those who just giving up easily. God bless to all!!!! Cheers!!!!!
I’m from the Europe and I’m one year in Canada, because I have a work permit for one year.( until October 2012 )
In the Europe I’m a Regristred Nurse, but in Canada I have to do a lot of things before I can work in a hospital.
In November Last year I started with English at Global Village, I also passed the FCE exam; First Certificate in English.
On this moment I’m following a preperation course for IELTS, but this is sometimes difficult and mostly not medical related.
I saw on the list from CARNA with the required language that it is also possible to do the CELBAN test
What do you reccommend me to do, the IELTS or the CELBAN
Are there any classes which I can join or do you have more information about it ?
I don’t have a CLB score, but I will try tomorrow to do a on-line assessment.
Hi this is V and I’m so glad that I got the result of my exam last week…and my review was all worth it! Thanks so much for the support and for calling me to practice the speaking. A million thanks to you. God Bless.
Thank you a million .I am full of confidence to pass the CRNE as i past the NCLEX. Although there is some difference between them ,i still thought i can make it .I have been working over 10 years as a registered nurse .i used to work in pediatric department for 8 years. i know the process of RN. firstly,i need to meet the requirements, then i could apply for the assessment. that might cost 1 year or more to complete. then i need to pass the SEC, finally, i could write to CRNE. anyway ,take care !
> hello, i am a license practical nurse here in USA, on my first course when i was in college i took french language class of 12 units and i passed it. as an LPN who wants to work in Canada, do you think i need to take the CELBAN test and if i need it is there a testing center here? thank you so much. God bless.
One of the best things about creating CELBANPrep is the wonderful e-mails I get from people living around the world. It fills me with delight to get these messages, many filled with gratitude, hope and ambition. Some are filled with dismay or disillusion. I am always delighted by the questions, spending time giving the best answers to my ability. Often I have thought, “I would really like to share this question with others. I am certain that there are other people that would benefit from reading this.”
Alas I have created Dear Kim, an intimate look at my inbox: a transparent look at my replies. Of course, in doing so I protect the identity of the writer, removing identifying information.
I hope that this glimpse into my inbox illuminates the darkness.
