    I'll be registering for the January semester at TESC and wanted some input from current or previous students. Do you like the program? How are the classes? Is taking 2 or more per session managable? Anyone else beginning in January? I'm kind of excited, I was enrolled at the University of DE and took a couple classes, but this program suits me better I think (I hope )...

    I am currently enrolled and I like it. There are no dreaded group projects. The papers are doable. It suits my schedule perfectly. As long as you earn 3 credits a year you are considered enrolled, and I have be going off and on since 2008.

    I started this semester with the Nursing Informatics course. It was a lot of work, but do-able. I was disappointed in that the course was more about following APA style than Nursing Informatics. The instructor was nitpicky and more concerned with form than content. I'm registered for a Leadership/MGT course in January and hoping it will be better. Two courses at a time is a lot to tackle, especially if you have a life.

    ps- one thing I wish was different is there's limited opportunity to commiserate with other students. There is a part of the discussion board where you can post anonymously - allegedly. Nobody used it. I wanted to discuss content and instructors but didn't find a way to do that.

    I graduated from TESC. It is a great school but I wish there were more of an "community" for the students in the classes as the previous poster mentioned. The courses are challenging at times and the instructors are, for the most part, understanding and knowledgeable. Of course some stand above others but that you will find at any school.
    Taking two courses is manageable as long as you stay on schedule. I liked that the course ran for 12 weeks.

    Best of luck to you!

    Glad to hear that their are people that are not in the military that are attending this school. They were marketing their degrees to the fire service in the 1990s and I was intrigued, now as I find myself in need of a BSN and am desirous of an MSN and this school seems to be the ticket! I am not afraid to write papers and I have a lot of credits to transfer in so hopefully I can keep my classes down to a minimum. Has anyone taken the master's level classes as part of the BSN program? As time has marched on, is everyone still attending?

    I just started this month and have 2 classes. I work FT hours and have a family, and so far so good. Yes, there are quite a few assignments, discussions, and papers but if you are organized you'll be fine. I really like the program, and am happy I made the decision to go there.

    smkiya, how was your first semester and what classes did you take. I am a little confused as to whether there are pre-reqs or not for this program. How did u enroll? Does financial aide cover? How soon after enrollment did you start? etc... I want to start a BSN program asap. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    PA ED RN - I see from your post and screen name that you are, or were a firefighter/EMS type and apparently in PA to boot. That's also my background but the EMS/fire service part is volunteer. Where in PA are you? PM me if you feel like continuing the dialog.
