Academic Portfolio Guidelines
ASN Academic Portfolio
Each Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) student is required to maintain an academic portfolio throughout the program. A portfolio is a purposeful collection of exhibits that demonstrate a student’s progress in achieving the program student learning outcomes. By the completion of the program, the portfolio will display evidence of self-evaluation, as the student reflects on personal and professional growth throughout the curriculum.
BSN and RN-BSN Academic Portfolios
Each BSN and RN-BSN student is required to maintain an electronic academic portfolio throughout the BSN program and RN-BSN completion program. The academic portfolio is a collection of data related to the student’s progress in achieving the baccalaureate program outcomes. It is a tool for student learning, self-evaluation, and assessment. The portfolio serves as a link between curriculum course content, course objectives, program outcomes, and professional nursing practice. The portfolio is used to showcase professional role development, values, core competence, and critical thinking. The completed portfolio is an integral portion of the student and program assessment process.
