I need to sue if I have been a victim of slander. The fall of nursing school a nurse that worked at the facility that I was doing clinicals, spread rumors about me. She told the nurses on the unit I was doing clinical gossip which caused me emotional distress and almost prevented me from securing my degree and nursing license. Is there anyway I can take legal action? The slander has jeopardized my career, as I am unable to secure a job because of it.
