E-portfolios for nursing – Royal District Nursing Service, South Australia
In this trial, Diploma of Nursing students used the PebblePad e-portfolio system to compile and present evidence to support a range of course and professional competencies, including those required by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council.
The use of an e-portfolio system helped to overcome the complexity in integrating, applying and translating evidence of competencies required under both course and professional frameworks and to meet increased regulatory requirements around learning evidence.
Learners, many of whom are following study pathways to university, completed activities that required them to reflect on their work placements, in a bid to facilitate a smooth transition between learning and work.
