Her parents didn't want her working in those "dirty" hospitals, but she was determined. They did many things to try to change her mind. She finally reached an agreement with her father. If he would let her go to Kaiserwerth hospital in Germany to study, she wouldn't tell anyone her plans. This way, her family wouldn't have to be "embarrassed" by her actions.
