I have been working on my portfolio for clinical ladder. I agreed to do it last fall. I only have a couple of weeks left before its done. Its a three ring binder with different categories marked off with tabbed sections with typed labels. The nursing supervisors will decide if what I give them is enough to promote me to clinical nurse level 3. I belong to a nursing committee. I get a point for writing about it and putting it in my portfolio. I give 5 examples of critical nursing interventions I have done over the last year with their medical record #. I did a clinical presentation at all 3 staff meetings for the different shifts. I write about that to get 2 points. I get 3 points for working at the hospital for over 20 years. I just hope I can get it done. I procrastinate too much. I'd much rather take care of people then write about it. I agreed to do this last fall after much encouragement from my boss and another nurse. I love nursing but I don't like writing portfolios. I did quite a bit of the writing for it today so I am taking a break to knit or read a book.
