Every once in a while I post a report written by an IEN for CELBAN Writing during the CELBANPrep Writing . 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:
Wow, R! … Perfect! How was the timing? She replied:
Horaaaaaaaaay, I did it in 20 minutes… I hope that I can do it in a real exam.
Check out the report she wrote! Notice how complete it is. Can you write a report like this, and have it this organized, in 20 minutes or less? ~Kim
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.
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 assignments are about nursing, personal experiences or something else that is a familiar topic to the writer. During CELBANPrep Writing, 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.
I was so pleased, and surprised when one of my IENs wrote about incident reports as her topic for an assignment for CELBANPrep Writing She did such an excellent job I immediately knew I wanted to post it, so that I could share it with you!
Here is an example of an incident report written by an Internationally Educated Nurse who completed CELBANPrep online course: CELBAN Writing Task 1 and CELBAN Writing Task 1. (She used CELBANPrep Writing, and accessed Writing Coaching through CELBANPrep University.) This is the result after several revisions. What follows is a discussion between me and the IEN who wrote the report.
