Electives, Minors, and Certificates


To meet the requirements of the BScN programs, Nursing students need to take 1.5 credits of elective courses.  Electives give the student an opportunity to explore new subjects in other disciplines of interest.  Students can choose from most of the disciplines offered by the University.  Students can enroll in Elective courses that do not have prerequisites or program restrictions, and that fit into their course schedule.  Elective courses can be completed in person or online. See when elective courses are offered by reviewing the timetable for in person courses, and the timetable for online delivery.  

Incoming first year Nursing students may be interested in the University Seminar course. 

The University Seminar course, 1013 for the Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences (FHBS), is for incoming first year students and provides foundational skills and connections for success. Students will learn about the resources and supports available to them at Lakehead, they will learn how to navigate Lakehead systems, and will practice academic skills for success in FHBS programs while learning some basics of health and its determinants. The course runs online July 15 to Aug 9, 2024. The cost of this course is included in first-year tuition and gives students a 0.5 credits first year elective toward their program.  https://www.lakeheadu.ca/students/academic-success/student-success-centre/university-seminar-course
