Bridging to Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) & Nursing

Overview

Bridging to Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) and Nursing

Bridging to STEM & Nursing is a suite of classes designed to help you enter the exciting and growing professions in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Nursing without the high school science prerequisites.

If you have always wanted a career in STEM or nursing — or you have been working for some time and you want a change but you didn’t take the right classes in high school or you have been out of school for a while — this is the program to take you to your better future.

Take your first year or more in Yorkton. These classes can be taken over one year or over several years.

Why Parkland College?

“I chose Parkland College because it is a good middle-ground between high school and university for transition. The best thing about Parkland College is the personal relationships between students and staff – they know you by name!”

- Larissa Perepeluk

“I chose Parkland College because it was close to home. I would recommend the College because of the small class sizes, engaging instructors and helpful/friendly atmosphere.”

- Brady Lang
