This program is designed for nurses who need to take the CELBAN test to certify their level of English to practice in Canada.
WHAT IS CELBAN?
CELBAN stands for "Canadian English Language Benchmark Assessment for Nurses". This exam is specific to nursing and is recognized by the nursing regulatory bodies in Canada. It’s a test designed for internationally educated nurses pursuing professional registration in Canada.
If you are practicing in Quebec and wish to move to another province in Canada, you will also be required to demonstrate a sufficient level of English as a second or additional language.
HOW TO REGISTER FOR THE CELBAN?
To register for CELBAN, simply fill out the online form available on the official CELBAN website. You will then be able to register for the speaking test and the listening, reading and writing test. Please note that it is necessary to take both parts of the test within a maximum of 14 days!
