♥ *You gave me the assistance, confidence and emotional support … I was able to pass CELBAN on my first try
This is A. You may not remember me but I subscribe to your CELBANPrep course 2 years ago. Now, I am very happy to inform you that I will be finishing my 10 courses in the BCN program for RNs this March. Yes! I am finally done with school and I will be able to apply for a GN position and later on RN! This is all thanks to you who made this possible. You helped me prepare for CELBAN. And during that time, I was losing hope because I was frustrated that I was not able to pass the IELTS for the 3rd time. But, thank God that I did not give up. You gave me the assistance, confidence and emotional support during that time. And because of that I was able to pass CELBAN on my first try. I will never forget it. Thank you so much! May God continue to shower you with more blessings! A
Now I have a confidence in my writing. When I wrote a letter to my supervisor, I could identify my errors. Run on sentences, verbs, punctuation and articles.
I sent an email a week or so ago regarding my result… At first, I was so depressed and sad regarding my result: Speaking- 8, Listening -10, Reading 9 and Writing -6. I was very disappointed because I spent most hours practicing the Writing part compare to the other components of CELBAN. It was a huge challenge for me and I was about to give up. My fiancée encouraged me not to loss hope and ask me about how I did in my Writing. I said,” I thought I was able to pass and failed on my Speaking because I was so nervous”. From there, we decided to have my Writing re scored and rechecked again. My Writing score was changed from 6-7. I PASSeD MY CELBAN!!! And you are one of the reasons why I made it. Thank you so much Kim! Godbless you always.
P.S: I’m still waiting for the collocation book to come out.hehehe. I’m so happy I subscribed to CELBANPrep=). Also, Happy Mother’s Day in advance.You are such a wonderful person Kim ^_______^Thanks,
I just got my CELBAN test result today, I PASSED! S-10, R-10, L-10, W-8. I am really proud of my scores and I have you to thank for that.
I was confident when I took the test because I know that CELBANPrep prepared me for it. I have one thing to share to you so that you can also remind your students about it.
I was excited about the writing task because I know that with all the practices that I did with CELBANPrep, nothing can go wrong. Well, I was wrong!! I was already home when I started to think about the exam, I was happy with my performance until I remembered that I did not sign the incident report! Another thing, I wrote 4 paragraphs instead of 3! The instruction was to write an incident report with 1-3 paragraphs. This haunted me for a week!
What I’m trying to point out here is that students should have presence of mind during the test.
It was good that I learned from you how to mind map so that information is organized [from CELBANPrep Writing Level One]. I also kept in mind your reminder to be conscious of the tenses [CELBAN or IELTS: Grammar Essentials]. I think this probably is the reason why I got an 8 in writing.
Thank you Kim and more power! Keep on empowering IENs to achieve our goals.
1G*!! After failing the IELTS 7 x, I joined [CELBANPrep] in the month of FEB, took the CELBAN MAY: I passed!!!
Kim, I was lost when I decided to finally take CELBAN. Prior to that I took IELTS more than 5x when I was in the Philippines and 2x here in Canada. I was devastated when I didn’t got my desired scores in IELTS. I had hesitations in applying for CELBAN because: first) it don’t know anything about it, second) i don’t know people or institution who conduct reviews and lastly) another months of preparation. Luckily, I saw CelbanPrep thru google… I joined in the month of FEB and took the CELBAN MAY 3. I passed! Continue reading
Good afternoon Kim,
My name is R, I am one of your student… I would like to thank you for all your guidance and support in my writing. Though, I felt so bad whenever I check my writing [CELBANPrep Writing Level One] there were lots colours for corrections- but for this corrections I improved and felt confident in doing an incident report [CELBANPrep Writing Level Two]. Honestly, I took IELTS exam 3 times, unfortunately I didn’t meet the score that they were requiring me to reach. Then I took Celban, first attempt I failed. Somehow, you gave me a chance … from that point I practice and practice until I got the confidence to overcome my fear of writing. Luckily, I got a schedule … for CELBAN exam … and I pass the exam. Kim, you put a mark in achieving my nursing career here in Canada.
Here is an example of an incident report written by a subscriber to CELBANPrep Writing Level Two. (She used CELBANPrep Writing One, and accessed Writing Coaching.) This is the result after several revisions. What follows is a discussion between me and the IEN who wrote the report.
Incident: 75 year old man found on the floor

Sent October 2nd.
I got the results today! Omg!
I can’t thank you enough!
Words aren’t enough to express how thankful I am for your help, guidance and encouragement. I wouldn’t deny that I was already thinking of other options in case I didn’t pass. I just don’t want to be so depressed and wanted to have a new course/way to look forward to if failed on this. And I did not fail, because of you. I mentionedyourCelbanprep to my friends but they are still undecided on what they wanna do. I guess it’s just a matter of what your dreams are but just like what they always say, ‘Dreams don’t work unless you do‘. We need to moveourhiney off. Haha.Thank you so much Kim. :)Always,
I purchased the CELBANprep Reading Sample Tests Book One, and I find it really interesting, giving me high hopes
Good day, and more power to an angel like you who sincerely support IENs like me. On the other hand, I did accessed your CELBANprep to have a tour on that link and its amazing, and to satisfy my interest with your online CELBAN material, I purchased the CELBANprep reading booklet 1, and I find it really interesting, giving me high hopes that I am in the right track towards my goal. I am planning to buy more of your online materials and I am taking it one step at a time. Again, thank you for being a great motivator and inspiration for IENs who are pursuing their dreams. M
