Strategies for Academic Portfolio 

A reflective, evidence-based collection of materials that documents teaching, research, and service performance or growth is known as an academic portfolio. It compiles information about a person’s most significant professional accomplishments in one place (Seldin, 2016).

As nurses, it is especially important to use our professional portfolios as primary evidence of learning and reflection, as well as to demonstrate that we have met our professional requirements.

Professional networking will be my first strategy for incorporating my academic activities and accomplishments into my development goals.

Professional networking is the process of expanding your knowledge and capabilities through relationships with other professionals (Grant, 2021). The key word here is relationship, which serves as a platform for career advancement.

What I am currently doing is another strategy I intend to employ. That is, I am advancing my education and gaining more knowledge. Academic advancement will help me stand out among my peers and develop into a leader.

My development objectives will be consistent with Walden University’s emphasis on social change because it is all about empowerment, community building, and elevating social change outcomes.

Continuing my education in the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Program will allow me to take on a leadership role, allowing me to empower my patients in a variety of ways.

In the realm of marketing, a successful branding strategy is one of the most important contributors to organizational success. A solid branding strategy can help add visibility and credibility to a company’s products.

Similarly, nurse-scholars can build a personal brand to add visibility and credibility to their work. You can begin building your brand by developing and maintaining an academic portfolio. Such an activity can help share the results of your efforts and contribute to your success. This week’s Discussion asks you to consider and share strategies for building your portfolio.

RE: Discussion – Week 8 Main Post

Adesola,

I agree with you on networking & getting educated. We get educated by networking. We can never go wrong with education as knowledge is power.  Professional networking might sound intimidating to recent college graduates or people who have never tried it before. In reality, networking simply means making connections and forming relationships with other professionals in your field. Professional networking can be a big help in this profession as it will break you out of your shell. Developing professional relationships, attending professional conferences and utilizing professional networking websites, attending meetings and workshops. Professionally networking with other healthcare departments such as therapies, physicians, social workers, etc., all these serve to facilitate the exchange of ideas and information that are vital to keeping a nurse’s knowledge fresh and relevant.
