Therefore, a 3 (2-1) course is a three-credit-hour-course that has two didactic credit hours and one clinical credit hour.One clinical credit hour represents three clock hours/week based on a 15-week norm. Therefore, one clinical credit hour represents 45 clock hours at a clinical site during a term.
