Completed at Weeks 1 and 8, this document is based on the National League for Nursing (NLN) Core Competencies of the Nurse Educator (NLN, 2017). Students should drop their assessments into their ePortfolio by Wednesday of Week 8, 11:59 p.m. MT. The Self-Assessment form is located in Course Resources.
This Self-Assessment of Core Competencies is a document that you will use throughout the educator track courses. It is to be placed in your ePortfolio. In each course, starting in NR535, you will focus on a specific area of the NLN Competencies.
You are to reflect upon and complete a self-assessment at the beginning of Week 1 and submit it by 11:59 p.m. MT Sunday of Week 1. Next to the assessment column, identify one goal for each competency that you hope to achieve by the end of this course (possible points = 50).
In Week 8, reflect upon and complete the self-assessment and submit it by 11:59 p.m. MT Wednesday of Week 8. Next to the self-assessment column, identify how you met the goal for competencies (#6 and #8) in this course (possible points = 50).
Remember that you are still in the development stage so not all (or any) of the competencies are expected to be at Level 3 by the end of this course.
As you move through the courses in the educator track, you will pull this self-assessment from your ePortfolio and complete it for the competencies specific for that course. In NR621: Concluding Graduate Experience 1 and NR622: Concluding Graduate Experience 2, you will do a similar assessment but will include all eight competencies. Directions for this will be in NR621 and NR622.
