In 1962, Nildred entered the Sisters of St. Joseph and earned a degree in Science Education. In 1967 Sister Nildred was sent to San Jorge in Puerto Rico to teach.

The following year, Sister Nildred returned to the United States and was sent to teach at Our Lady of Lourdes School in Brooklyn where she ministered until 1972.
