Who the Program is for
If you completed your nursing education in another country and you speak English as a second language, you will want to take the CELBAN & IELTS Test Prep course at OMNI College. CELBAN & IELTS has been endorsed by most RN, RPN and all LPN licensing bodies across Canada as an acceptable option to demonstrate your level of English language proficiency for licensure. These tests will evaluate your proficiency level in all four skill areas (speaking, listening, writing and reading).
The CELBAN & IELTS Test Preparation course at OMNI College is designed to improve the student’s English Language competency in order to prepare them to practice nursing in Canada. This course also helps Internationally-Educated Nurses prepare to write the CELBAN™ Test or the IELTS Test.
Unlike other CELBAN & IELTS Test Preparation courses offered elsewhere that may be only 1 – 2 days per week, spread out over many weeks, OMNI’s course is highly intensive and runs Monday through Friday every day. We found that after years of offering CELBAN & IELTS Test Preparation to IENs, this intensive and daily class delivery model was what maximized the students’ chances for success.
OMNI is the best college which can understand the importance of CELBAN and help the students in the best possible way. I would not have done it without OMNI!Anupa | India
I have been a nurse for 10 years in the francophone province of Quebec in Canada before I moved in BC. Due to receiving all my education in French I had to pass the CELBAN exam to earn my nursing license in BC. I was anxious to pass this exam because it meant that I could work as a nurse here. I did the CELBAN preparation class at OMNI College and this gave me the tools and the confidence to achieve my goal. I met exceptional teachers and classmates at OMNI. I feel that teachers really understand what students are going through, they are empathetic and they believe in our potential. I also received excellent coaching on my personal needs. Now I am happy to be a RN in BC.Audrey | Canada
When I came here I didn’t know anything about CELBAN at all. Without your help and direction I wouldn’t be able to pass CELBAN. Even though my English was adequate but I didn’t have any idea how to do CELBAN. Thank to OMNI College by helping me through this challenge. I don’t think any other institute or college could offer more than you offered.Safiyeh (Sophia) | Iran
