Since 1995, registered nurses and midwives have been obliged to develop and maintain a professional portfolio of evidence reflecting the learning activities that they have undertaken and how these have informed and influenced their practice. The aim of this article is to demonstrate that rather then just a retrospective account of continuing professional development activities, a portfolio can be used as a vehicle for engaging in self-assessment and personal development planning. Possible structures and type of evidence are explored and portfolios in the context of gaining accreditation for prior experiential learning, and in particular for those nurses in advanced clinical roles, are discussed...

Professional profiles and portfolios have recently been identified by nursing's regulatory bodies in the UK as ways of recording each nurse's career and professional development. Although the use of portfolios is widespread in education, the concept of a developmental portfolio to support continuing professional development on an individual basis is recent. As an innovation in nursing the portfolio is to be used for periodic registration with the UK Central Council (UKCC), for the on-going recording of learning, both formal and experiential, and as a way of accrediting prior learning for academic purposes...

Reflection enables learning to occur from immediate experiences, from which theory and frameworks of care can be developed. Reflection heightens self-awareness, enabling increased understanding of the effects that past experiences may have on care delivery. Personal and professional development occurs through the process of reflection. Kolb's experiential learning theory provides a framework for reflection, focusing on the role of experience in learning.

Story telling has been used for centuries as a powerful vehicle for communication, education, recreation and the preservation of cultural identity. In this paper the appeal of stories is discussed, and placed in a nursing context, with reference to the health care environment, which is increasingly dominated by technology, and the collection of impersonal 'information' against a background of market forces and competition. It is argued that this environment alienates nurses from each other, and from their patients, leaving them emotionally impoverished and distanced from the basic humanity of their craft...

The ENB Higher Award is designed to be flexible and clinically relevant, allowing practitioners to study to first degree and to masters if desired, or simply to follow individual units of learning in the programme to meet identified professional development needs. The structure of the ENB Higher Award is based on the 10 key characteristics of the ENB Framework; these encapsulate all the qualities that should make a good nurse and act as a reference point for practitioners. The aim of the Higher Award is to produce Quality Education for Quality Care, promoting higher standards of nursing care by the application of relevant skills and knowledge...
