Evaluation of the portfolio is based on completeness, adherence to the criteria, and depth of ideas and originality of answers.
The length of the paper is not correlated with the grade the paper earns. For instance, a longer paper will not necessarily result in a higher grade. The student who submits a well written, succinct paper adequately covering all the required areas will earn a higher grade than the student who submits a rambling, incoherent paper which does not contain the required content.
For this assignment each student will prepare a professional portfolio. The purpose of this assignment is for to you use reflection as an educational tool to make connections among the school’s educational framework, program objectives, SCHOOL OF NURSING PROGRAM OBJECTIVES , assignments, personal experiences, and the AACN Essentials of Baccalaureate Education. Through a completed portfolio you will be able to document your progress toward achievement of the program’s objectives. You will also provide information about the end of program outcomes in relation to those identified in The Essentials of Baccalaureate Education published by AACN.
The School of Nursing Program Objectives and Essentials of Baccalaureate Education are found in the University of North Florida, Brooks College of Health, School of Nursing, Student Handbook on the BSN and the RN-BSN Blackboard sites. The Essentials can also be found on the homepage for the American Association of Colleges of Nursing at http://www.aacn.nche.edu/
