Module 11 Written Assignment – Nurse E-Portfolio: Final Course Entry

In this final course entry into your Nurse E-Portfolio for this course, you will be examining and reflecting on the knowledge and skills you have learned about health assessment. Using the e-portfolio format, answer the following questions. Make sure you spend some time thinking about the answers to these questions before writing.

  1. What two areas of knowledge have you gained?
  2. What specific health assessment skills are you now able to integrate into your nursing care?
  3. Are there any areas that still remain unclear? What will you do to increase your clarity?You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

    Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

    Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
