Dear Friend,

Every once in a while I post a report written by an IEN for CELBAN Writing during the CELBANPrep Writing ย . Today I am posting this sample to show you that it is possible to write a complete, detailed and organized report in 20 minutes. This one was posted with only one small error. Here is my comment:

๐Ÿ”– CELBAN Writing ~ Writing Incident Reports

Updated 2021

ย 
Dear Friend,
ย 
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 Writingย assignments are about nursing, personal experiences or something else that is a familiar topic to the writer. During CELBANPrep Writing,ย 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, where assignments are in a nursing context: assessment and incident reports.
ย 
I was so pleased, and surprised when one of my IENs wrote about incident reports as her topic for an assignment for CELBANPrep Writingย She did such an excellent job I immediately knew I wanted to post it, so that I could share it with you!
ย 
Enjoy,
Kim
