Mine is rubbish. I'm in the process of applyin for jobs so will be interested in the suggestions on here.
I have certificates and a few reflections. Also some audits that I had to do.
Thats about it. Pretty poor really!

Mines mostly certificates I'm sure there's a load of other rubbish in it, can't think what though, will let you know if I can find it. Think there's some reflections I really can't remember what else sorry

Certificates, audits, reflections, any personal thank you cards from patients, thats it...pretty dull. TBH the last three interviews I've had they've asked me specific questions while another member of the panel flicks through it, then we just had a discussion about an audit I'd done that was relevant. Its pretty skinny compared to some others I've seen but I've got the job each time so I'm convinced its quality not quantity!

I think mine looks exactly as it did when I left Uni!
I've done loads of study days etc. but I just put the certificates in a drawer. If I get the random finger of fate pointed at me from the NMC, I'll jazz it up then. Mine has a diary of work placements, reflections, significant events (these are quite funny - one is about a dog that ran on the ward through a fire door when I was in my 2nd year)
My learning journey, study days etc.
TBH whenever I've taken it to job interviews, they haven't even looked at it, or they've looked at the first couple of pages and said. Looks good!
Good luck xxxx

I had to update mine recently as i went for another job and I spent ages writing up reflection pieces, all with neat dividers etc etc literally spent like two full days on it. And they flicked through and didn't read any of it. I reckon you could put the title reflection and then write the words to your fav song and they wouldn't realise it !!! lol.

New to the game at 35.
Hello all. My husband just surprised me last week by saying if I wanted to have a baby he is willing to do so. He has 2 kids, 14 and 8, from previous relationships so for the 5 years we've been together it was all "don't want another ". We got married April 1st of this year. I have PCOS so I had accepted life without a baby of my own and have been on BC for most of my adult life. But now he has changed his mind and I am ecstatic and terrified! I threw away my last 4 active pills, which obviously messed up my cycle lol. So here we go to see what we can do. I cant decide if it would be scarier to conceive right away or for it to take a long time (if at all). I am on Metformin for diabetes (very well controlled, a1c of 5.4 last time checked) and I've been taking inositol supps for a while now just to see if they could help with other symptoms. Also started taking prenatal vitamins as preparation. Sorry for my long winded intro, I'm just excited. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
