Refused admission to medical colleges in Boston, she applied to a Swiss university, was accepted, and graduated with a degree. She returned to Boston and became well established in her profession. She established the country's first School of Nursing at the New England Hospital for Women. On a voyage to Europe, she was lost in a shipwreck off the coast of England.
