Nursing Students - Getting Started in Google Sites and Drive - Step 1

You will locate your Nursing Portfolio through your College email account. You will be using Google Sites for your portfolio and Google Drive for your portfolio documents.

Google Sites is a structured Web page-creation tool offered by Google. Google Drive is a location where content is stored, similar to a filing cabinet, with the ability to create, upload, share, and collaborate with others.

The directions below will show you how to access Google and how to add documents to Google Drive. Google Drive is where you will be storing documents for your nursing portfolio.
