What is a portfolio?
A professional portfolio is a collection of materials that document the nurse’s competencies and illustrate the nurse expertise.
Why is the portfolio important?
A portfolio is a presentation of you as a professional APRN. Portfolio development at postgraduate level emphasizes linking theory and practice and stresses the importance of reflection on practice. The portfolio can also be used by nurses to develop their clinical career pathways and encourage personal development planning (Joyce, 2005)
