Introduction The purpose of this task is to create a shell of your portfolio; you will complete the remaining sections of the portfolio later. Throughout your time at WGU, you will develop skills and knowledge that will support your practice as that of a baccalaureate-prepared nurse. A professional portfolio will showcase your knowledge and skills to prospective employers and will increase your marketability as a baccalaureate-prepared nurse. This portfolio will help you focus on the concepts, strengths, and clinical reasoning abilities that will define your professional nursing practice. When you are ready to submit your portfolio for evaluation, please use the “Knowledge Base Link” weblink for instructions on creating your e-portfolio. In this task, you will reflect on key concepts from throughout your degree program: quality and safety, evidencebased practice, applied leadership, and community and population health. Requirements Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. An originality report is provided when you submit your task that can be used as a guide. You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course. A.

You may include experiences from your life that influenced your decision to become a nurse (e.g. What does the experience mean? Why is the experience important? How will you integrate what you learned from that experience into your practice?). C. Acknowledge sources, using APA-formatted in-text citations and references, for content that is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized. D.
