This site is a resource for electronic portfolio (ePortfolio) development for CSU Channel Islands Nursing Students. The goal is that new graduate student nurses have the ability to produce their own personalized ePortfolio that can be shared when seeking employment. A well developed ePortfolio can articulate professional goals and nursing philosophy, demonstrate learning experiences during the educational path, and showcase work examples and professional achievements. Although employers may still request a printed resume, the ePortfolio can present a more unique, humanized connection to the applicant with inclusion of images, videos, project examples, and digital badges.
