Dr. Charmaine Watson founded this school with a heart to give back to people and to help produce quality nurses. Having almost 30 years experience in nursing herself, she has been on every level of nursing. She began with completing her PN diploma, then her ASN, BSN, and finally MSN to go along with her Ph. D. over the last few decades. She understands what it takes to get through every stage of nursing, including a strong support team. That is why, together with the help of her family, she is dedicated to training future nurses with grit, skill, compassion, and integrity who feel prepared to be successful in this profession.

Bridgeway School of Nursing is mission minded and focuses on helping communities both local and abroad. At home, we support organizations in Orlando that help with the homeless population. We support programs with the Methodist children’s home in Deltona, FL and have partnered with the Sanford Pregnancy Center. We encourage all our students to participate local and international mission trips. This not only gives experience, but also provides an opportunity to work in the field.
Globally we partner with Overland Missions. Since its creation in 1999, Overland Missions has worked to expand its reach for Christ around the globe.

They have projects that provide clean water, medical aid, and agricultural sustainability, focusing on both the physical and the spiritual needs of people.
