Hope you don't mind if I jump onto your post a little late, but I have a little more adivce to offer you....
I personally went to Jacksonville University to obtain my BSN and I was very happy with the program. Unfortunately, the high cost of tuition does limit the number of applicants willing to attend the school. However, if you are an out of state resident the two schools
tuition's are pretty comprable. I know both schools offer financial assitance and scholarships
(thank god for scholarships!!!!!
Basically, what I'm trying to say is that you really need to analize the break down of what the two schools have to offer. I know I may be a little biased (because I went to JU) but JU is a private school with an excellent reputation in the Jax area. Almost every single one of my fellow graduates had a job before they even graduated, most were hired immediately from their pracitucum experiences!! JU also offers some clinical experiences that are not available at UNF (this may not matter if you are not interested in those fields).
Lastly, a good thing to do before you decied on a school is go to the hospials in the area and ask them which grads they perfer to hire first. I'm not ashamed to say I did it
!!! Higher education cost a lot of money and you need to be sure you get a school that meets your needs!
