Dr Gabrielle Thorpe, School of Health Sciences, University of East Anglia
This book is a simple, quick and easy to use guide to building a professional portfolio for nursing students. Students are required by the NMC to keep an ongoing record of achievement, to demonstrate their competence at each stage of their programme. The portfolio is an essential part of the assessment of practice to demonstrate nursing competence. This book gives a step-by-step and practical explanation of how to compile a professional portfolio to succeed in these assessments. It can be used throughout nursing programmes and into your nursing career as a tool to help with interviews, appraisals and the NMC revalidation process.
- Excerpts from other students' portfolios show what makes a good portfolio
- Step-by step activities guide you through building your own portfolio
- Linked to the latest NMC Standards and ESCs for pre-registration nursing education
