Using the e-portfolio format, answer the following questions. Make sure you spend some time thinking about the answers to these questions before writing.

  • Since your mid-course entry have you made any changes in your 1-5 rating where 5 represents the most “healthy eater.” What number would you give yourself now?
  • Did your rating change? If so, in what direction and in what way? What adjustments to your diet, if any, did you make?
  • What two important nutritional principles or concepts have you learned and will always remember? What is their impact on your delivery of quality safe nursing care?
  • Select one assignment that you submitted in this course that you believe is your “best work.” Explain why you selected this assignment. Attach the assignment to your e-portfolio.
  • Submit your completed assignment by following the directions linked below. Please check the Course Calendar for specific due dates.
