600 – I am from Philippines currently working as caregiver … I wanted to try CELBAN but I am scared … I am not working in the hospital now for three and half (3 1/2) years

CELBAN Preparation in the Philippines

Dear Kim,

Greetings,
Honestly, I am comfused to what english test to take, I was reading about Ielts but I found difficult. I wanted to try CELBAN but I am scared because I don’t have the idea how is the exam is going to be, yes i know, there will be listening, reading, writing and speaking, but I am still wondering how is it going to be done in CELBAN. I have tried IELTS (general) before But I was not satisfied about my score, it was low, its was really bad and frustrating.
As when I was viewing all your videos (Dear Kim Canada – YouTube) I’ve heard that there will be role playing , and thats make me scared even more because I am not working in the hospital now for three and half (3 1/2) years, I can feel now as I do not know anything anymore in nursing, like nursing terms and all and so with the writing I am so slow, I practise, I try to write but everytime I read my out its so frustating because its just like it was done by grade 3or grade 5 student… I’m screwed!
By the way, I forgot to introduce my self, I am G from Philippines currently working as caregiver and soon to have an open permit, hopefully it will go smoothly.  (I’m working on my papers now). I am planning to complete my english exam within this year, I wanted to be a Licensed practical nurse first then hopefully I can proceed to a Registered Nurse someday if God’s permit.
Thank you…please help me. G

$ Thinking of coming to Canada as a TFW, or know someone who is?

June 16, 2012 Global News 16:9 did an Encore Presentation entitled Disposable Labour about the true reality of coming to Canada as a Temporary Foreign Worker, or TFW.

It documents the excitement, the recruitment fees, the disappointment and the disillusionment, and the sadness of missing children that are still living back home.

High levels of debt, working illegaly, sexual assault and living in substandard housing were all issues faced by people who came to Canada with hopes and dreams.
