The University of North Florida is among the nation's top 75 “best value” public colleges and universities, according to the Princeton Review.
UNF also was named a best value public college last year as well as in 2009 and 2007. This is the latest in a long series of national awards UNF has received from ranking agencies from across the world of higher education.
An updated list of those rankings is viewable online here.
“UNF has been recognized by some very elite organizations and is showing up on nearly every national college ranking,” UNF President John Delaney said. “In addition to the University’s strong academic programs, UNF just makes financial sense and has one of the lowest tuition rates in the country.”
UNF was the only Northeast Florida institution of higher learning to make the list. It is among only five universities in the entire state to be featured on the annual list, including the University of Florida, Florida State University, University of Central Florida and the New College of Florida.
The Princeton Review teamed with USA TODAY to present its list, “The Princeton Review Best Value Colleges for 2012.”
The list, which salutes 150 undergraduate schools in all — 75 public and 75 private colleges and universities—is posted on the websites of The Princeton Review and USA TODAY.

Department: School of Nursing, Brooks College of Health Job title: Associate Professor
What do you do?
I clinically supervise nursing students in their psychiatric-mental health nursing rotations. I teach in the research nursing science sequence for undergraduate pre-licensure and RN-BSN students. I also teach in the area of chronic illnesses and disabilities in the RN-BSN Program. Years at UNF: 16 years
Tell us about your family.
My husband is a retired Navy dentist and has a dental practice locally. In 2011, we celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. I have two adult children, Jennette and Justin, a son-in-law, Evan, and two frisky grandchildren, Hannah, 6, and Caleb, 3. My husband has nine siblings so we also have a large extended family scattered throughout Michigan and the West Coast and love to visit them whenever we can.
If you could choose any other career, what would it be and why?
I would still be a teacher of something. I love teaching as you learn as much as you teach. It would definitely have to be a career with people interaction. I am fortunate my career has allowed me to be a nurse and a teacher.
What would you like to do when you retire?
I want to keep learning, whether it be learning about other places or cultures through travel. I loved the Navy life for that reason. I want to pursue some volunteer opportunities. Beyond that I want to learn about the arts. I would love to take an art history course and drawing or painting classes. It is time to explore my right brain. What is your favorite thing about working at UNF?
Working at UNF has been wonderful. Foremost, I love the work environment — especially in the Brooks College of Health. I have never worked with a more dedicated professional and innovative group of individuals. It has been a privilege to be a part of the nursing program and the Brooks College of Health. Watching the University grow over the years has been amazing.
What is the best thing you ever won?
I was fortunate to receive the American Association of Spinal Cord Injury Nursing (AASCIN) Article of the Year in 2005 and again in 2008 for my research publications in the area of patient education and spinal cord injuries. To receive this affirmation of my work was so appreciated.
If you won the lottery, what would do with the money?
This would be sheer fantasy as I never buy lottery tickets but here goes. I would buy a yacht and hire a crew and travel. Maybe Shad Khan’s yacht? I would definitely want an oceanside dream house or more spectacularly an island of my own somewhere out in the Pacific Ocean.
I know I would not get too distracted and remember my roots and endow support for a College of Nursing at UNF!
If you were not working at UNF, what would you be doing?
I would definitely be seeking opportunities with some of the non-profits in town. I like to work outside hospital walls and love new challenges. Again, on the fun side, I’d ride my beach cruiser bicycle on the beach more often and work out.
What is your favorite way to blow an hour?
Talking or catching up with family and friends on the phone or through texting or e-mail.
What was the best money you ever spent?
Anything to do with educational expenses. At each level of education, new opportunities became available for me. On the practical side — my first washing machine and dryer.
What is the proudest/happiest moment of your life?
My wedding day, having children, being the proud mother of the bride, the births of my grandchildren, and earning my doctorate in Educational Leadership! Each of these life events proved exciting beyond words. Tell us something that would surprise people to know about you:
Although I may come across as settled, privately I love adventure and need challenges. I love excitement. I don’t see the adventures ending yet.
What was the first concert you ever attended, and what was the most recent concert you attended?
If you can you believe, it my first concert was The Beatles! I still enjoy the oldies but goodies — Neil Diamond and Rod Stewart.
What person had the greatest impact on your life?
Without a doubt, my husband. He has shared in this wonderful adventure of marriage. He has always encouraged me in my career choices. I also credit my nursing professors in my BSN program at Wayne State University in Detroit way back when for being such wonderful mentors who I still aspire to this day.
What are you most passionate about?
Definitely my work. I take enormous pride in being a professor at UNF and want to be the best role model I can be with students.
Who is the most famous person you ever met?
More recently it was Patty Duke. She is an Academy Award actress who I remembered from my youth. She was invited to a Brooks College of Health event and I had an opportunity to speak with her on a personal level. She has become a spokesperson and advocate for those with mental disorders. As a psychiatric-mental health nurse, I found her willingness as a celebrity to talk so frankly on her own personal journey managing bipolar disorder inspiring.
Tell us something about you that even your friends don’t know:
I am fairly open about my life including the ups and downs, especially with close colleagues and friends. If my friends don’t know about something, then it shouldn’t be shared.
What do you hope to accomplish that you have not done yet?
I have had the exciting privilege of traveling in Asia and living on the island of Guam but only limited travel in Europe. My dream is to go on an extensive trip and really experience Europe beyond that of a typical tourist.
