If you have been suspended your best course of action would be to contact your human resources department and make a formal statement of your version of events. You should also reference your employee handbook to see if there are any guidelines related to this type of situation.

If your drug screen is negative then most likely, you will be allowed to return to your job with a warning but do make sure you are being proactive and staying in communication with your human resources department.

I hope this feedback has assisted you and feel free to ask follow up questions. Also, please do not forget to rate me so that I get credit for assisting you today (It does not cost you anything additional and you can still ask follow up questions after).

Thank you,

I would not worry about being reported to the state nursing board. Generally, hospitals will only report infractions to the state nursing board that can not be resolved within the hospital.
