*1G Writing Sample ~ CELBAN Assessment Reports: turning weaknesses into strengths

Writing Sample _ CELBAN Assessment Reports_ turning weaknesses into strengthsDear Friends,

For CELBANPrep Writing IENs are encouraged to write both incident reports and assessment reports. Each assignment is reviewed several times, by a writing coach for the Writing Tutoring. Every once in a while I read a report that stands out. I am posting this one online, with permission from the writer.

Please pay attention to the following:

  • medical documentation standards,
  • avoidance of the word “I”,
  • clear descriptions of observations,
  • vital signs, and
  • advanced punctuation.

This IEN worked hard to turn her weaknesses into strengths, during CELBANPrep Writing Level Two, and has become a master.

Also note, this report was written and edited with in 20 minutes using the skills taught in CELBANPrep Writing Level One and lots of practice.

Enjoy!

Kim

2G* CELBAN Writing ~ Writing Incident Reports

Writing Incident Reports - CELBAN Writing
Dear Friend,
The Canadian English Language Benchmark Assessment for Nurses is different from the IELTS because the topics for the CELBAN are familiar: about nursing or your personal experiences. For this reason the topics chosen for CELBANPrep Writing Level One assignments are about nursing, personal experiences or something else that is a familiar topic to the writer. During CELBANPrep Writing Level One, IENs work with a writing coach/tutor who provides individualized feedback on how each IEN can turn his or her weaknesses into strengths. This process continues for CELBANPrep Writing Level Two, where assignments are in a nursing context: assessment and incident reports.
I was so pleased, and surprised when one of my IENs wrote about incident reports as her topic for an assignment for CELBANPrep Writing Level One. She did such an excellent job I immediately knew I wanted to post it, so that I could share it with you!
Enjoy,
Kim

► I feel like I am wasting my time … just waiting for the CELBAN news

NOTE: Although this message was written during the changes in national administrator of the CELBAN it may still apply, if you are waiting for an available seat for the exam.
Dear Kim,
My name is Z and I’m from Manitoba.  I have been waiting desperately for the news of the upcoming CELBAN schedules since CELAS centre no longer exist. I have been informed before by CELAS of my exam dates last summer but I guess it didnt push through because of the recent changes and the money that I paid didn’t reflect in my bank statement so I guess no.
I am writing to you because I need to enroll in writing classes or writing course you got there.  I really dont know what to take. All I want is someone to check in my work specifically in writing because I cant seem to get it right.  I have taken the iCelban exam at the MNU twice and my results with listening are 10 and reading are 8,9 but with writing I can’t seem to get it even at 7. I always get 6 on both the iCelban exams.  I didnt have the chance to take the speaking test because I don’t a a specific date yet.
So, I need your help in my writing.  I need someone to check what I have done and give me feedbacks  Also money wise it’s a little expensive hope you have some discount ? 😉
Also, I’m working full-time but on shifts. I work two weeks days, two weeks nights and alternate after that.  I am really determined to learn.  I feel like I am wasting my time which I am just waiting for the CELBAN news to come up.  So, here I am thinking on enrolling in writing course.  Will there be an coach to give me feedbacks? will I be able to see my work?  How is it gonna work?  ( too many question) tsk…
Hope to hear from you soon. Good day! Z
