  • Hi Sarah, I'm originally from Russia where after completing my midwifery/nursing degree I worked as a staff midwife and a neonatal (newborn) nurse at the Obstetric Clinic of the Siberian State Medical University for five years. Back there I learned how to create my Professional Portfolio but it was a long time ago... :) I also completed my Midwifery degree here in NZ but we never learnt in class how to make our portfolio, so I don't have any education about Professional Portfolio.

    Thank you once again! :)

  • Thanks so much for that, Lana...always nice to get positive feedback. What sort of education did you get about your professional portfolio as an undergraduate midwifery student?
