In general, each semester credit equals about 42 hours of total student work and each quarter credit equals about 28 hours of total student work.

Course Description
Psychotherapy involves giving more than “good advice.” In order for the psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP) to be effective, deliberate approaches to therapy must be consistent with evidence-based practices. Learners in this course examine a variety of therapeutic techniques that can be used during psychotherapy sessions with individuals across the lifespan. Emphasis is placed on evidence-based applications of various therapeutic approaches for a wide range of psychiatric issues. Practicum experiences focus on psychotherapeutic approaches with individuals. NURS 6640 – Psychotherapy with Individuals – Syllabus.

Course Assignments
Online Discussion and Clinical Supervision
The exchange of ideas between colleagues engaged in scholarly inquiry is a key aspect of graduate-level learning and is a requisite activity in this course.
Requirements: You are expected to participate at least two separate days a week in the weekly Discussion area. Discussion topics/questions are provided in the Discussion area. In addition, you are expected to respond to your fellow students’ postings. To count as participation, responses need to be thoughtful; that is, they must refer to the week’s readings, relevant issues in the news, information obtained from other sources, and/or ideas expressed in other class members’ postings. Where appropriate, you should use references to support your position. Most weeks have at least one Discussion question. The Discussion questions require a response to one other student’s posting; it should be no more than two paragraphs long. NURS 6640 – Psychotherapy with Individuals – Syllabus
All Discussion postings need to be made in each week’s Discussion area of the course, unless otherwise stated. Please do not e-mail postings to the Instructor or other students. Refer to the Discussion area for specific instructions.
Discussions will be graded according to the Discussion Rubric found in the Course Information area.
Assignments and Projects
An Assignment or Project often is a writing assignment submitted to the Instructor for evaluation. Complete Assignment or Project directions are in the Assignments or Projectsla areas, including how and where to submit the Assignment or Project and the due date. Please note that you should keep copies of your Assignments and Projects on your computer in case of any technical difficulties. NURS 6640 – Psychotherapy with Individuals – Syllabus
Information on scholarly writing may be found in the APA manual and at the Walden Writing Center website.
Please refer to the APA Guide or visit the Walden University Online Writing Center at

Check the Course Information area for any rubrics relating to the Assignments and Projects.
All assignments must be completed to pass the course.
Practicum Activities
The practicum experience in this course will assist your transition from the role of learner to that of scholar-practitioner. To achieve this transition, you will engage in a relationship with a clinical instructor and preceptor, focusing on roles and role functions and the achievement of individualized learning objectives. The primary objective of your practicum is to provide you with the basic skills necessary to serve as a mid-level provider of primary care to selected populations and prepare you to take the appropriate national certification exam. NURS 6640 – Psychotherapy with Individuals – Syllabus
The practicum component of the course will be graded as Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory. In order to pass the course, you must earn a grade of Satisfactory on all required practicum activities including journal entries and time logs.
At the end of the course, you must also ensure that your practicum preceptor submits an online evaluation of your performance. You will also complete an online evaluation of your practicum experience at the end of the course. These evaluations will not only provide information about the progress of individual students, but also help program leadership to continuously work on the course review and improvements. You will receive an Incomplete (I) as a grade if any of the above evaluations are not received by the posted deadlines. NURS 6640 – Psychotherapy with Individuals – Syllabus
All assignments must be completed to pass the course.
Time Logs: Students are required to keep a log of the time spent related to their practicum experience and enter every patient they see each day. Students can access their time log from the Welcome Page in their Meditrek account. Students will track time individually for each patient they work with. Students are required to continuously input their hours throughout the term. Logs are reviewed by instructors in weeks 4, 7 and 10. Please print and keep your completed Meditrek Log at the end of your clinical experiences for future use as a component of your portfolio.

For more information on Instructor feedback, go to the Faculty Accessibility section of Faculty and Student Guidelines for Online Courses, located in the Guidelines and Policiesarea.
Preferred Methods for Delivering Assignments
Submitting Course Postings to the Weekly Discussion Areas
Be sure that you post to the correct Discussion area each week. Do not e-mail postings to the Instructor. For all initial Discussion postings, make sure that the first sentence of your posting reads Main Question Post. For your responses to others’ postings, make sure that the first sentence of your response reads Response. These actions will ensure easily identifiable subject lines for your postings and responses.
Submitting Assignments and Projects
Assignments and Projects are submitted according to the instructions in the Assignments or Projects areas and are named according to the week in which the Assignment or Project is submitted. Directions for naming each Assignment or Project are included in each week’s Assignment or Project area. NURS 6640 – Psychotherapy with Individuals – Syllabus.
E-mailing Your Instructor
When e-mailing the Instructor, please use the following heading for your e-mail subject line: last name + your first initial + course number (e.g., RideSNURS6640) so that your Instructor will recognize and read your e-mail.
Policies on Late Assignments
Discussion and Assignment Postings
No credit will be given for Discussion and Assignment postings made after the week in which they are due unless prior arrangements are made with the Instructor. Exceptions will be made only for those rare situations that legitimately prevent a student from posting on time. Points will be deducted from late postings. NURS 6640 – Psychotherapy with Individuals – Syllabus.
Assignments
Assignments are due by Day 7 of the week in which they are assigned unless otherwise noted. Failure to meet the deadline without prior approval will result in at least a 3-point deduction per day. Any Assignment submitted after Day 4of the week following that in which it is assigned will receive zero points.
Keeping Your Coursework
You will have access to the course and your coursework from the course start date until 60 days after the course ends. After this time, you will no longer be able to access the course or related materials. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you retain copies of your completed assignments and any documents you wish to keep. The University is not responsible for lost or missing coursework.
Instructor Feedback Schedule
The Instructor will log in to the course during the week to monitor the weekly Discussion area. Feedback will be provided via the comments in the My Grades area, the Discussion area, and/or the Announcements page.
You can expect your weekly assignment grades to be posted within 10 calendar days of a due date. Instructor feedback and explanation are provided whenever full credit is not achieved. Depending on the nature of the feedback, Instructor responses may be posted to the Discussion area or included in the My Grades area. The goal of your Instructor is to act as a discussion and learning facilitator rather than a lecturer. The Instructor will not respond to every posting by every individual, so please feel free to ask your Instructor if you would like some personal feedback on a particular assignment posting or any time you have any questions regarding your assignments or your grade.
