Nursing student’s portfolio demonstrates an ability to gather appropriate data, analyze a situation, and formulate an appropriate diagnosis/conclusion. ePortfolio helps students to set goals, make plans and reflect on their progress as they achieve them.

There are benefits to using an electronic portfolio. With traditional portfolios, binders holding papers would take up lots of space. Electronic portfolio take up infinitely less space than paper-based portfolios. They can be updated easily, yet previous copies can be archived. They are interactive; students can link from document to document, or to outside resources. With an electronic portfolio, information can be easily stored in a computer hard drive, floppy disc, CD or other. This would take up very little physical space and would be accessed with minimal effort.

There are many different types of electronic portfolios: assessment ePortfolios, presentation ePortfolios,  learning ePortfolios, personal development ePortfolios.

    Rather than stating that ‘There are many different types of portfolios…’ would it not be better to say that ‘One’s ePortfolio can be used for a wide variety of purposes and to present to a variety of audiences.’

    We need to understand that one’s ePortfolio is both Lifelong and Lifewide. It moves with us from job to job and many of the artefacts can be used for different purposes and also reflecting my different personas.

    The ePortfolio is just not a ‘collection’ of artefacts and related personal reflections, it can be the focus for mentoring, formative feedback, peer-review and collaboration.

    In all sections of medical practice confidentiality is of extreme importance and a professional secure system should be employed.
