INTRODUCTION
A professional e-portfolio will showcase your knowledge and skills to prospective employers and will increase your marketability as a baccalaureate-prepared nurse. This e-portfolio will help you, as a nurse, hone in on the concepts, strengths, and critical thinking abilities that define professional nursing practice. Throughout your time at WGU, you have developed skills and knowledge that distinguish your practice as that of a baccalaureate-prepared nurse. Items that display your skills and knowledge will be showcased in this professional portfolio. You should organize your portfolio around the four areas of professional nursing practice: quality and safety, advanced evidence-based practice, applied leadership, and community and population health. This portfolio will expand on the portfolio you already created in your Professional Roles and Values course.
