BSN e-Portfolio Information

All BSN students are required to create an electronic portfolio (e-Portfolio) that is submitted for grading in the final nursing course. The purpose of this e-Portfolio is to highlight the best work you have completed during your BSN program and reflect on what you have learned and how you have grown professionally. The e-Portfolio supports your professional development, documents your clinical competence, and maps course assignments to your program outcomes. The content of your e-Portfolio are artifacts suchs as your papers, presentations, and other documents that provide evidence of what you have accomplished in the program and how you have met the BSN program outcomes. In addition to the artifacts, your e-Portfolio includes a well-written reflective narrative for each BSN program outcome, no longer than two pages, that gives examples, demonstrates what you have learned and how you have grown professionally, and states how the course assignments helped you meet each specific program outcome..

Timeline: Creation of your e-Portfolio begins in your first nursing course with the creation of your About Me page, which includes your most current resume. e-Portfolios are a work in progress that should be updated at the completion of each succeeding course. Your final e-Portfolio will be due in NUR-445. Do not wait until the final course to create an e-Portfolio.
