"With an academic portfolio nursing faculty members can monitor their career development and present their work for others to review and critique. This is an easy-to-read book that will serve as a valuable resource for nursing faculty members in developing their academic portfolios."

Using the Fast Facts style of concise, easy-to-access information, this book is the only comprehensive guide to creating an outstanding professional academic portfolio for entry into, and promotion and tenure within, an academic nursing setting. It is designed for recent nursing graduates who want to teach, faculty who need to polish their academic portfolio, and individuals already established in academia who seek promotion or tenure.

This volume will help nursing academics:

  • Assess their strengths and weaknesses
  • Write a personal statement
  • Demonstrate their teaching skills
  • Showcase their research/scholarship
  • Organize and present their portfolio
  • Develop an E-portfolio

The book provides clear guidelines on what to include in a professional portfolio, and elements to highlight when seeking work in a specific discipline or academic role. It describes pitfalls to be avoided and how to insure effective coverage of teaching, scholarship, and service, as well as addresses the differences between systems and policies of academia, versus those of community college nursing programs and diploma schools of nursing. This guide also helps prepare nurses for the rigors of promotion and tenure by clarifying what to expect and how candidates are evaluated. Numerous examples illustrate actual professional faculty experience and include personal statements written by successful nurse educators.

Key Features:

  • Provides a concise, step-by-step guide for aspiring, new, and experienced nurse faculty who need to prepare an outstanding professional portfolio for promotion and tenure
  • Organized for quick access to types of content to be included in portfolio
  • Includes numerous examples from real-life portfolios
  • Features "Fast Facts in a Nutshell" to clearly guide new nurse faculty
  • Provides recommendations for achieving academic advancement
  • Based on SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, and Recommendation) method of communication
