In November 2022, the CNRC (Canadian Nurse Regulators Collaborative) updated cut scores for the CELBAN (Canadian English Language Benchmark Assessment for Nurses) and IELTS Academic ( International English Language Testing System).

The new cut scores better reflect the language demands expected of nurses at the entry-level to practice in Canada. For more information you can read a full press release from CNRC here

The CLPNPEI has updated our policy to immediately reflect the new cut scores
