I have been employed with my company 11 years. I've had no

I have been employed with my company for over 11 years. I've had no disciplinary actions or difficulties prior to the last couple of months. My supervisor tells me there are "complaints" about my "communications skills" and that I am "borderline inappropriate". I've worked as a health care professional for over twenty years (I am an RN), and have held management positions and interacted with patients and families throughout that time, without a problem. She won't tell me who has complained or what has occurred but instead says "it's their perception and since they've never complained about anyone else, it must be true". Today I was given a written verbal warning and she said "Is it really worth it?". I have always followed the rules and have never hesitated to tell a superior if something was outside my ethics. In the midst of all this, I was asked to do something against federal regulations, which I refused to do. When that same supervisor refused to take no for an answer, i filed a "whistle blower" report with my Compliance Officer. He investigated, and someone at our corporate level intervened and redirected the activity into regulatory compliance. No matter what I've said or asked in my last two meetings with this supervisor, I come out of it feeling threatened professionally. I know she wants me to quit, and that would be the easy way to walk away with some professional dignity. Do I have other options?
