Will the real Guerrilla Nurse please stand up!

Ever wonder what it is really like to sue your employer?

Melissa Brown, otherwise known as the Guerrilla Nurse, is a retired RN living in Pensacola, Florida.

For 37 years, she practiced as an RN in various clinical areas including emergency, flight nursing, critical care, and  psychiatric/substance abuse settings.

In May of 2013, Melissa was fired from her position as an RN at Lakeview ASU in Pensacola, Florida. 
With the help and support of her husband, she was able to do what most nurses can’t do. 

She sued!

After her deposition on April 9, 2015, she learned she wouldn’t be able to obtain a copy due to the cost: nearly $600.00! She started a "GoFundMe" page. Within two weeks, she raised the funds.

Melissa promised she would post the deposition online if she could raise the funds. 

And here it is!

We are grateful and proud of Melissa's courage to go public in an effort to help others in similar situations.
