Eddy's first husband died just before her 23rd birthday, six months after they married and three months before their son was born, leaving her penniless; as a result of her poor health she lost custody of the boy when he was four, although sources differ as to whether she could have prevented this.  Her second husband left her after 13 years of marriage; Eddy said that he had promised to become her child's legal guardian , but it is unclear whether he did, and Eddy lost contact with her son until he was in his thirties.  [n 16] (Per the legal doctrine of coverture , women in the United States could not then be their own children's guardians.) [n 17]
Selecting the best nursing school in Pennsylvania can be difficult. To make the process easier first look for a school that supports students towards licensure and beyond. A great way to measure this is through NCLEX-RN "pass rates." We have ranked the top 30 nursing schools in Pennsylvania by analyzing current and historical NCLEX-RN "pass rates", meaning the percentage of graduates who pass the exam, out of the 76 RN programs in the state. Programs reviewed include schools that offer an Associate in Nursing (ADN/ASN), BSN, or Direct-Entry MSN Degree.
