BSN4020 Unit 10 Assignment 1 Latest 2017 March
Professional Development Portfolio
This is the final portion of your capstone project. Your Professional Development Portfolio will be a compilation of specific artifacts that should be suitable to present at a job interview or performance review.
Please note that you will not be evaluated on the four previous assignments; you will only be evaluated on your written summary. But be sure that you submit your entire portfolio.
This component demonstrates your proficiency in program outcomes 5, and 9.
- Program Outcome 5: Communication: Communicate effectively with all members of the healthcare team, including interdepartmental and interdisciplinary collaboration for quality outcomes.
- Program Outcome 9: Professional Role: Incorporate the qualities, skills, behaviors, and knowledge required to function as a patient advocate, practice high quality care, assess and evaluate patient outcomes, and provide leadership in improving care.
Compile your artifacts from the four previous assignments into a professional portfolio that you might share with a prospective employer, or a supervisor or manager. Imagine that you are either applying for a new position, advocating for a new role, or preparing for a year-end review.
When applying for a new position, or advocating for a new role, it is helpful to anticipate the sorts of things a decision maker might be looking for in evaluating you for that particular position or role and to rehearse your responses.
For your capstone project, you will submit your Professional Development Portfolio, and include a written summary of your proficiency in the format of interview questions and answers. To accomplish this:
- Prepare your Professional Development Portfolio. Include all of the artifacts from this course.
- Prepare a written summary of your proficiency in the format of interview questions and answers as follows:
- Briefly describe a position, role, or project you would like to apply for or participate in. Alternately, imagine that you are preparing for a performance evaluation.
- List the questions that you imagine you might be posed. Respond to each question, highlighting accomplishments from your portfolio that demonstrate your level of competence.
- Continue with a succinct summary of the qualities, skills, behaviors, and knowledge your bring to the tasks of patient advocacy, the practice of high quality care, the ability to assess and evaluate patient outcomes, and the leadership skills needed to provide improved patient care. (This should be 1–2 paragraphs in length.)
- Conclude with a statement that reflects your understanding of the role of lifelong learning in your career goals.
Submit your Professional Development Portfolio and your interview questions and answers to your instructor for grading.
- Times New Roman font, 12 pt. Double-spaced.
