Is there anyway you could post a link or file with your template. I'm interested in seeing it.
I have no direct link as it is a .pdf download but it is on our nurses board site
You will find alot of stuff about it on there but you really need acrobat reader to be able to use the site.
When you open it, enjoy reading all 28 pages of the template
I'm an agency nurse at the moment, (previously worked in permanet jobs) but I have always kept my CV up to date and recorded my certificates from study days but no inservice!! So, I'm not sure what I am going to do about that.
From what I understand, the portfolio is to be backdated to include your previous years work. How many years it doesn't say but gee, I was under the impression that back dating documentation was illegal!
I can see the relevance of a portfolio but it really needs some parameters set. At the moment it is open ended. Also, one job I did was very specific. The only criteria you needed was RN. This was because everything about this job was learnt on the job and none of it is relevant to any other nursing position. None of the skills we learnt will crop up in hospital/nursing home/community nursng work. So when I list this stuff, I doubt the nurses board will know half of what it means. It was not a hospital job.
As to how many staff at the nurses board they employed, probably none. I have a comment as to why it's none but think it may be wise to withhold it!! It's not polite you see
