If she was terrified of going out, then she probably wasn't very far, just around your house.
Well yes, she is ready, but you have to consider few things. Like where you live, does neighbors have dogs, car frequency, wild animals and so on. It's not always safe to let your cat out.
We live next to the frequented road, both neighbors have dogs and there are also wild animals running right behind our house. I would never let any of my cats go outside for the night nor ever without me looking after them.
