Book Short Summary:

"Each chapter's activities are hands-on and should make the book a useful and enjoyable experience. It will appeal to students and teachers as a one-stop shop for portfolio advice and support." Nursing Standard "This text is much needed. Clearly written and engaging, this has the potential to become a gold standard portfolio text." Roger Watson, Editor of Journal of Clinical Nursing and Professor of Nursing, School of Nursing and Midwifery, The University of Sheffield "Having read this book, I feel that it is not only useful for nursing students, but could be useful for qualified nurses who are working on their continuing professional development folder... As students progress through their course, how they manage their time, their attitude to learning and the goals they set for themselves may change. It is fitting therefore that the first chapter looks at learning in the context of portfolios and includes a time management, desire for learning and self control questionnaire - which although gives no definition to how the student manages their time, could prove to be an interesting activity particularly if completed at the start of a year and then at the completion of the year." Joanne Starkes, Nursing Student "Fiona Timmins has made the topic of nursing portfolios easy to understand with simple terms and many helpful activities throughout while still being easy to read. While covering everything from the purpose of portfolios, content and structure to portfolios in operation this is a book that will greatly help anyone trying to produce a portfolio whether just starting or nearing the end of one...I will deffinately be refering to this book throughout my 3 years as a student nurse making my portfolio and would reccomend others to do so as well." Laura Franklin, Nursing Student "Fiona Timmins has written a book which is not just usefull for student nurses but it also makes the topic easier to understand. Throughout the text there are many activities for the reader to partake in. It covers key topics such as "portfolio content" and "portfolio structure". As a 2nd year nursing student i believe that this text is a valuble asset to any nursing students bookshelf as it is clear, consise and makes what can be a very confusing subject appear much easier." Vicky Bain, Nursing Student "Fiona Timmins has produced a book that is not only simple and easy to read but provides activities that enable the reader to think deeper about the information they include within their portfolio. Remember points dotted through each chapter provide quick and easy hints and tips to look back on while completing a portfolio ... This is one book, which I wish I had the chance to read in my first year, but it will be a handy companion while I complete my portfolio. I will recommend this book to my fellow classmates and also students in the years bellow, as they will defiantly benefit from this book." Leanne Haigh, Nursing Student This accessible book provides a guide to the context of portfolio development and its importance not just to assessment but to the patient experience. All students undertaking pre-registration nursing qualifications are required to complete a portfolio as part of their formal assessment, in order to bridge the gap between theory and practice and to provide evidence of achievements in practice. Fiona Timmins offers a handy guide to approaching, putting together and developing an effective portfolio, helping you answer questions like: What should be in my portfolio? How should I present it? How will my portfolio be assessed? Reflection points and portfolio examples make the book easy to use.

Book Short Summary:

The Future of Nursing explores how nurses' roles, responsibilities, and education should change significantly to meet the increased demand for care that will be created by health care reform and to advance improvements in America's increasingly complex health system. At more than 3 million in number, nurses make up the single largest segment of the health care work force. They also spend the greatest amount of time in delivering patient care as a profession. Nurses therefore have valuable insights and unique abilities to contribute as partners with other health care professionals in improving the quality and safety of care as envisioned in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) enacted this year. Nurses should be fully engaged with other health professionals and assume leadership roles in redesigning care in the United States. To ensure its members are well-prepared, the profession should institute residency training for nurses, increase the percentage of nurses who attain a bachelor's degree to 80 percent by 2020, and double the number who pursue doctorates. Furthermore, regulatory and institutional obstacles -- including limits on nurses' scope of practice -- should be removed so that the health system can reap the full benefit of nurses' training, skills, and knowledge in patient care. In this book, the Institute of Medicine makes recommendations for an action-oriented blueprint for the future of nursing.
