A complete portfolio is a graduation requirement of the MN program. The MN portfolio is submitted to your initial MN advisor during the final semester of the program no later than the Monday following the last day of regular classes. The format may be binder or jump drive and the initial MN advisor is available to assist as you prepare the portfolio.
The primary purpose of a portfolio is to engage students in the learning process and to augment traditional classroom learning and evaluation of learning. The portfolio is a purposeful collection of student work that reflects or provides evidence of student efforts, progress and achievement toward attainment of learning outcomes based on articulated competence.
If you plan to pursue the MSN at FPB, be sure to retain your MN portfolio as a foundation for the MSN portfolio.
