She received her training in New York and then in 1888 returned to San Francisco, where she opened a practice. In 1907, she founded a private clinic named the Florence N. Ward Sanatorium.

She was determined to obtain a college education and moved to Boston where she enrolled at the BU Theology School. She graduated in 1878, but her application to become an ordained Methodist Episcopal minister was rejected. Fortunately, the Methodist Protestant Church accepted her, and she became the first woman to be ordained in the Methodist church in the United States. For 7 years, she was pastor of the church in East Dennis, Massachusetts, and during this time, she studied medicine at BU, graduating in 1885.
