Lakeview College of Nursing is on a semester system. While the length of a semester may vary, the definition is based on sixteen  weeks, which includes an examination period provided at the end of the semester.
A “credit hour” is the amount of work represented in intended learning outcomes and verified by evidence of student achievement that is established and that reasonably approximates not less than:
one hour (50 minutes) of classroom or direct faculty instruction and a minimum of two hours of out-of-class student work each week for approximately 16 weeks, or the equivalent amount of work over a different amount of time; or
at least an equivalent amount of work as required in paragraph (1) of this definition for other activities, including laboratory, simulation, clinical, and other academic work leading to the award of credit hours.
Student contact time and out of class expectations are prorated for summer semesters or short courses that meet for less than the standard 16 weeks, so they contain the same number of hours as if the course were scheduled for a full semester.
