Abstract:
The focus on evidence in today's health care systems permeates decision-making in clinical practice, leadership, and professional development. A professional portfolio provides evidence of competencies, contributions, and professional growth. The process of collecting evidence and developing a professional portfolio provides an opportunity for reflection and assessment of current competencies, proficiencies, and learning needs. Review of the portfolio allows the nurse to monitor their career development and progress toward professional goals. Selected portions of the portfolio, sometimes referred to as a profile, may be used for annual performance reviews, credentialing, certification, and application for jobs, promotions, or post-graduate education. This presentation will acquaint the CNS with 1) uses of a professional portfolio - performance reviews, credentialing, certification, application for new position, application for promotion and, application for admission to post-graduate education; 2) evidence to be included in a professional portfolio, and; 3) formats which may be used to organize and present a professional portfolio. Participants will identify possible documents to be included as evidence of competencies, contributions, and professional growth in a professional portfolio including curriculum vitae, performance reviews, copies of procedures/protocols written, case studies, certificates, diplomas, publications, brochures, and letters of appreciation. Increased understanding of portfolio content is particularly timely as several professional groups, including the National Association of Clinical Nurses Specialists, plan to incorporate a professional portfolio in the evaluation criteria for credentialing. It is important for nurses to begin as early as possible to collect evidentiary materials to include in their professional portfolio to document their competencies, proficiencies, and expertise.
