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 in initial nursing roles, where portfolios are an essential tool for interviews and employee appraisals.
