Throughout your time at WGU, you will develop skills and knowledge that will support your practice as a baccalaureate-prepared nurse. The purpose of this task is to create a shell of your portfolio. You will complete the remaining sections of the portfolio in later courses. A professional portfolio showcases 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.

Near the end of the Intrapersonal Leadership and Professional Growth course, you will reflect on leadership applications, mindset, and skills, as well as potential challenges you will encounter in the healthcare environment. Through this process, you will learn how to incorporate leadership principles for professional growth into your professional practice.

Your e-portfolio should include strategies used to ensure self-care and resilience both personally and professionally. This task also promotes a leadership mindset, including cultural sensitivity, diversity, equity, and inclusion. In completing this task, you will increase self-awareness and knowledge of how to interact effectively with different cultures. Additionally, you will learn to apply the newly acquired leadership skills to positively affect patient outcomes.
