Use of ePortfolio Presentations in a Baccalaureate Nursing Program
Feather, Rebecca; Ricci, Margaret
College Student Journal, v48 n4 p549-558 Win 2014
Portfolios are an essential tool for demonstrating professional accomplishments and documenting professional growth in a variety of professions. Because of the competitive job market for new graduate nurses in health care, the development and use of an ePortfolio can be an essential tool for the application and interview process. The purpose of this paper is to report the use of ePortfolio presentations in a course at Indiana University, Bloomington campus. The implementation of an ePortfolio for seniors grew out of the previous practice of students displaying their work in a three-ring binder. As technology progressed the portfolio presentation practice grew into the use of a digital portfolio template, and then more recently, the ePortfolio emerged and was implemented through the online course management system offered by the university. Students were asked to write a reflection about their assignments, and overwhelmingly choose the resume and portfolio assignments as the most valued in the course. The experience is invaluable for the students as they exit the BSN program and launch their careers as professional registered nurses.
