Clinical Hour Log

For this course, all practicum activity hours are logged within the Meditrek system. Hours completed must be logged in Meditrek within 48 hours of completion to be counted. You may only log hours with Preceptors that are approved in Meditrek. Students with catalog years before Spring 2018 must complete a minimum of 144 practicum hours. Students with catalog years beginning Spring 2018 must complete a minimum of 160 practicum hours. You may not complete your hours sooner than 8 weeks.

Each log entry must be linked with an individual practicum learning objective or a graduate program objective. You should track your hours in Meditrek as they are completed.

Your clinical hour log must include the following:

  • Dates
  • Course
  • Clinical Faculty
  • Preceptor
  • Total Time (for the day)
  • Notes/Comments–including the objective to which the log entry is aligned

Patient Log

Assignment: PRAC 6665 SYLLABUS

Throughout this course, you will also keep a log of patient encounters using Meditrek. You must record at least 80 patients by the end of this practicum.

The patient log must include the following:

  • Date
  • Course
  • Clinical Faculty
  • Preceptor
  • Patient Number
  • Client Information
  • Visit Information
  • Practice Management
  • Diagnosis
  • Student Notes- Students must include a brief summary/synopsis of the patient visit—this does not need to be a SOAP note; however, the note needs to be sufficient to remember your patient encounter
By Day 7

Record your clinical hours and patient encounters in Meditrek.

Week 5: Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation and Patient Case Presentation; Midterm Clinical Evaluation

 

What do I have to do? When do I have to do it?
Review your Learning Resources. Days 1–7
Assignment 1: Clinical Hour and Patient Logs Record your clinical hours and patient encounters in Meditrek by Day 7.
Assignment 2: Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation and Case Presentation Submit by Day 7.
Assignment 3: Midterm Evaluation Your Preceptor will evaluate your clinical skills by Day 7.

 

Consider the experiences you have had thus far, either in the healthcare workplace or at your practicum site. As you likely know, a nurse’s job does not begin and end with one-to-one patient contact. It includes meetings, documentation, trainings, and collaboration. In particular, the nurse is a member of an interdisciplinary team and must use oral and written communication to inform others of a patient’s status. A central skill of advanced practice nursing, then, is the ability to present a patient’s history, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment plan to relevant parties involved in treatment.

This week, in addition to your Meditrek tracking, you will develop a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and video case presentation on one of the patients you have interacted with in your clinical practicum. Also, as you approach the halfway point of your practicum, your Preceptor will assess your clinical skills this week in a Midterm Clinical Evaluation.

Learning Objectives

Students will:

  • Describe clinical hours and patient encounters
  • Assess patients across the lifespan in mental health settings
  • Formulate differential diagnoses for patients in mental health settings across the lifespan
  • Develop a case study presentation based on a clinical patient
  • Compare preceptor evaluation with self-evaluation to assimilate level of clinical performance

Comprehensive psychiatric evaluations are a way to reflect on your practicum experiences and connect the experiences to the learning you gain from your weekly Learning Resources. Comprehensive notes, such as the ones required in this practicum course, are often used in clinical settings to document patient care.

For this Assignment, you will document information about a patient that you examined during the last 5 weeks, using the Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation Template provided. You will then use this note to develop and record a case presentation for this patient.

To Prepare

  • Select a patient that you examined during the last 5 weeks. Review prior resources on the disorder this patient has. Also review the Kaltura Media Uploader resource in the left-hand navigation of the classroom for help creating your self-recorded Kaltura video.
  • Conduct a Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation on this patient using the template provided in the Learning Resources. There is also a completed exemplar document in the Learning Resources so that you can see an example of the types of information a completed evaluation document should contain. All psychiatric evaluations must be signed, and each page must be initialed by your Preceptor. When you submit your document, you should include the complete Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation as a Word document, as well as a PDF/images of each page that is initialed and signed by your Preceptor. You must submit your document using SafeAssign. Please Note: Electronic signatures are not accepted. If both files are not received by the due date, Faculty will deduct points per the Walden Late Policies.
  • Develop a video case presentation, based on your progress note of this patient, that includes chief complaint; history of present illness; any pertinent past psychiatric, substance use, medical, social, family history; most recent mental status exam; and current psychiatric diagnosis, including differentials that were ruled out.
  • Include at least five (5) scholarly resources to support your assessment and diagnostic reasoning.
  • Ensure that you have the appropriate lighting and equipment to record the presentation.

Assignment

Record yourself presenting the complex case for your clinical patient. In your presentation:

  • Dress professionally with a lab coat and present yourself in a professional manner.
  • Display your photo ID at the start of the video when you introduce yourself.
  • Ensure that you do not include any information that violates the principles of HIPAA (i.e., don’t use the patient’s name or any other identifying information).
  • Present the full case. Include chief complaint; history of present illness; any pertinent past psychiatric, substance use, medical, social, family history; most recent mental status exam; and current psychiatric diagnosis, including differentials that were ruled out.
  • Report normal diagnostic results as the name of the test and “normal” (rather than specific value). Abnormal results should be reported as a specific value.

Be succinct in your presentation, and do not exceed 8 minutes. Address the following:

  • Subjective: What details did the patient provide regarding their personal and medical history? What are their symptoms of concern? How long have they been experiencing them, and what is the severity? How are their symptoms impacting their functioning?
  • Objective: What observations did you make during the interview and review of systems?
  • Assessment: What were your differential diagnoses? Provide a minimum of three (3) possible diagnoses. List them from highest to lowest priority. What was your primary diagnosis, and why?
  • Reflection notes: What would you do differently in a similar patient evaluation?
By Day 7

Submit your Video and Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation. You must submit two (2) files for the evaluation, including a Word document and scanned PDF/images of each page that is initialed and signed by your Preceptor.

Now that you have been working at your practicum site for more than a month, it is time to test your skills. Your Preceptor will now assess your clinical skills in a midterm clinical evaluation. In preparation for your evaluation, you may wish to review your PMHNP Clinical Skills List and Resource Review document, as well as revisit the goals and objectives you established in Weeks 1 and 2.

To Prepare

Check with your Preceptor to verify that they have received Meditrek credentials.

Following your midterm evaluation, your Clinical Faculty and Preceptor will meet privately to discuss your results and feedback. Once you receive your feedback, compare your Preceptor’s evaluation with your self-evaluation to better understand your clinical performance.

Clinical Evaluation Grades

Your clinical instructor will complete an evaluation with feedback from your preceptor and evaluation of your work.    Meditrek calculates an average score which will be used to determine the score that will be entered into Blackboard for your evaluation grade.  The table is listed below.

 

Average Score in Meditrek – Clinical Instructor Evaluation Gradebook score (out of 100)
4.0 100
3.0 – 3.99 90
2.0 – 2.99 70
1.0 – 1.99 60

 

By Day 7

Your evaluation should be completed by your Preceptor.

Primary and Secondary Sources

Review the following information prior to selecting resources for assignments.

Primary: A primary source is an original document that is the first account of what happened. A research report is primary, and you can tell because it includes materials and methods demonstrating how the research was done. Some creative work is also primary, such as poetry, novels, and interviews of people who experienced something firsthand. In nursing, which is an evidence-based discipline, we strive to use primary research that is published in scholarly, peer-reviewed journals.

Scholarly, peer-reviewed journal: Scholarly journals publish papers by professional authors and experts in the field using a peer-review process to review the work and assure quality before publishing. The focus of a scholarly journal is to provide accurate information for scholars and other researchers. The focus is on content rather than advertising, a direct contrast to popular media. Scholarly journals publish both primary and secondary papers, the former usually noted as original research and the latter as reviews and commentaries. Letters to the editor may also be published but should be recognized as opinion pieces.

Note: When selecting articles for course assignments, you are advised (unless you are referencing seminal information) to focus on work published within the past 5 years.

Secondary: A secondary source is one step removed from the original source. This work interprets and often compiles other work, and it includes review articles, textbooks, fact sheets, and commentaries about a topic. It also includes news reports of original research. Secondary work is more prone to error and bias than primary work because it is being filtered through an additional person or persons. Review papers can be useful to glean information about a topic and to find other sources from the reference list, but it is the original, primary research that should be relied on most heavily in demonstrating scholarship, depth, and validation of factual information.

Course Assignments

Assignments: The Assignments provide you with the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge gained through the Learning Resources and at your practicum site. See specific weeks for detailed descriptions of the Assignments. In grading some of the required Assignments, your Instructor will be using rubrics located in the Course Information area.

Note: The course Assignments will require that you completely and accurately demonstrate critical thinking via assimilation and synthesis of ideas when using credible outside and course-specific resources (i.e., video, required readings, textbook), when comparing different points of view, highlighting similarities, differences, and connections, and/or when lending support to your Assignment responses.

This Practicum course contains several different types of Assignments:

Self-Assessment and Journal

A student self-assessment and a reflective journal occur at the beginning and end of the course as a means to consider strengths, opportunities for improvement, guiding goals, and growth.

Clinical Hour and Patient 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 logs 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 and evaluated by Instructors each week to track student progress. Failure to keep clinical hour and patient logs current may hinder success in the class. Please print and keep your completed patient log at the end of your clinical experiences for future use as a component of your portfolio.

Focused SOAP Notes and Patient Case Presentations

In the Focused SOAP Note and Patient Case Presentation Assignments, students complete documentation on a patient from their practicum. They record themselves presenting an analysis of the case. Videos should be created in Kaltura, support for which may be found in the Blackboard classroom.

Grading Criteria and Total Components of a Grade

Course grades will be based on participation (postings) and completion of assignments listed below.

Letter grades will be assigned as follows:

90%–100% = A
80%–89% = B
70%–79% = C
< 70% = F

Incomplete Grade Policy

Per university policy, Incomplete grades can be granted only to students who have already met the minimum criteria for active weekly participation in a course (including weekly postings in online courses) and have completed at least 80% of other coursework. Incompletes can be awarded when, because of extenuating circumstances, a student has not met additional course requirements, including but not limited to written assignments, group projects, and research papers, as applicable. All Incomplete grades are awarded at the discretion of the Course Faculty.

Students who are eligible for an Incomplete must contact the Course Faculty to request the grade as soon as possible. Students who do not meet the criteria listed above will not be allowed to earn an Incomplete. If the Incomplete is approved, the Faculty Member will work with the student to outline the due date(s) for remaining work. Under no circumstances will the new due dates extend beyond 50 days from the last day of the term. Faculty will then have 10 days to assess the work and post the permanent grade before the university-allotted Incomplete time limit of 60 days expires. All Incomplete grades not resolved within the time allotted will convert to permanent grades of F.

Instructor Feedback Schedule

The Instructor will log in to the course during the week to monitor the Discussion area in those weeks when a Discussion is assigned. Feedback will be provided via the My Grades area, the Discussion area, and/or the Announcements page.

You can expect your assignment grades to be posted within 10 calendar days of a due date. Instructor feedback and explanation is 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 learning facilitator rather than a lecturer. 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.

Course Procedures

You are encouraged to post course-related questions to the Contact the Instructor area as they may be of interest to all; however, if your question is urgent, it is often best to email the Instructor. If your emailed question is thought to be of benefit to all, it may be responded to by the Instructor via email to all or posted as an announcement.
Instructor feedback on content and writing issues that is thought to be of benefit to the entire class may be posted to the Contact the Instructor area; however, most personal critique will be done privately in the Grade Center. Be sure to check the Grade Center for comments every week even if you received full credit.
Please feel free to use the Class Café to initiate and participate in conversations not directly related to the course. This is an excellent opportunity to get to know other students better. The Instructor will browse the Class Café occasionally but generally will not respond to conversations posted there unless students have specific questions for him or her.
Check the email account you use for official Walden University business on a regular basis. The expectation is that you are checking this email account daily during the week. If you experience difficulty sending or receiving Walden email, please contact the Student Support Team right away. Contact information for the Student Support Team is located in the Student Support area.
Review all materials in the Course Information area, as well as the materials contained under each of the weekly buttons.
Preferred Methods for Delivering Assignments

Clinical Hour and Patient Logs, as well as the Midterm and Final Clinical Evaluations, are completed in Meditrek. The link to Meditrek is provided in the classroom.
Assignments are submitted to the SafeAssign link and named according to the week in which the Assignment is submitted. Directions for naming each Application Assignment are included in each week’s Assignment area. Please be sure that all written Application Assignments are saved and submitted as a “.doc” file.
All email correspondence must contain in the subject line “PRAC 6665-XX-NAME” (XX is the section number) followed by a brief description of the subject. This subject line convention ensures that your email will be easily identified and responded to in a timely manner. It is required that the email contain a signature that matches the official name used in the course.
Late Assignment Policy

Students are expected to submit assignments by the due dates noted in the course. In extenuating circumstances, such as illness, the student must contact the Instructor as soon as possible to discuss the situation. In those circumstances, Faculty will determine the appropriate course of action for the student. Depending on the situation, these actions may include recommendations to drop the course (if within the university drop/withdrawal period), acceptance of some or all of the overdue assignments with or without penalties, or failure to accept assignments.

Assignments submitted late without prior agreement of the Instructor, outside of an emergency absence, or in violation of agreements for late submission, will receive a grade reduction for the assignment amounting up to 20%. After 5 days, the assignment will not be graded. Students should be aware that late assignments may not receive the same level of written feedback as do assignments submitted on time.

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.

Course Evaluation

At or near the end of the course, you will receive an email inviting you to submit an online evaluation of the course and instruction. All submitted course evaluations are confidential, and only aggregate data and comments will be shared with the Instructor and Program Director. Your feedback is vitally important to Walden University in its efforts to continuously improve programs.

Students With Disabilities

Students in this course who have a disability that might prevent them from fully demonstrating their abilities should contact the director of Disability Services at disability@mail.waldenu.edu or at 1-800-925-3368, ext. 312-1205 and +1-612-925-3368 or https://www.waldenu.edu/contact for international toll-free numbers as soon as possible to initiate disability verification and discuss accommodations that may be necessary to ensure full participation in the successful completion of course requirements.

Classroom Participation

In accordance with U.S. Department of Education guidance regarding class participation, Walden University requires that all students submit at least one of their required Week 1 assignments (which includes posting to the Discussion Board) within each course(s) during the first 7 calendar days of class. For courses with two-week units, posting to the Discussion Board by Day 7 meets this requirement. The first calendar day of class is the official start date of the course as posted on your myWalden academic page.

Assignments submitted prior to the official start date will not count toward your participation.

Financial Aid cannot be released without class participation as defined above.

Students who are taking their first class with Walden and do not submit at least one of their required Week 1 assignments (or at least one Discussion post) by the end of the 7th day will be administratively withdrawn from the university.

Students who have already taken and successfully completed at least one or more class(es) with Walden, and who do not participate within the first 7 days, will be dropped from that class.

If you have any questions about your assignments, or you are unable to complete your assignments, please contact your Faculty Member.

Bibliography

The bibliography contains the references for all learning materials in the course. For your convenience, a link has been provided to download and save the bibliography.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
