Abstract

Learning portfolios are gaining acceptance in nursing education as a viable way to individualize student learning and evaluate outcomes. Traditionally, portfolios have documented learning that has already occurred. This article describes how the design of a learning portfolio for nurse educator students provided greater insight into their new practice of teaching by assisting in both the reflection of their previous experiences and the visualization of their first teaching position.
