"The compilation of a nursing portfolio is a task, which is often neglected in the busy student nurse's life between long shifts and assignments. Timmins & Duffy encourage one to take on the challenge and guide one through the process systematically ... Examples of structured reflections and of portfolio layouts make the realisation of one's own well presented portfolio easier than one might think. Any student or qualified nurse will thus benefit from Timmins & Duffy's encouraging book."
Karin Schirmaier, Student, University of the West of England, UK
"This book is intended for nurses at all stages of their careers and offers a much needed step-by-step guide to planning, writing and maintaining a portfolio. I was particularly pleased to see a strong emphasis on refl ection and education, as a means of encouraging nurses to think critically and learn from their own practice. All in all, this is a very well-constructed book which I highly recommend."
