Professional Development Plan

In this week’s Discussion you were introduced to the concept of an academic portfolio to begin building your own brand. Portfolios have value that go beyond brand-building however. An academic and professional portfolio can also help you to build your own vision and mission and establish your development goals. In this regard, a portfolio becomes yet another tool in your toolbox as you build your success.

In this Assignment you will continue developing your Academic Success and Professional Development Plan by developing the fifth component: a portfolio for your academic and professional efforts.

To Prepare:

  • Consider your goals for academic accomplishments while a student of the MSN program.

The Assignment:

  • Using the Academic Success and Professional Development Plan Template (attached) in which you began to work on in Week 1, and have continued working on through this course, in Part 5, you will develop a curriculum vitae (CV) based on your current education and professional background. (current education- associates and bachelors obtained in nursing, began working as a CNA when I was 14 years old and continued in medical path from CNA, LPN, to RN now going on to Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner.)
  • Write a statement identifying your professional development goals.
  • Write a statement proposing how you might align one or more of your professional development goals with the University’s emphasis on social change.
