If your nursing license is suspended in one state can you still practice in other states that you have a license? My license hasn't been officially suspended yet. I had a positive alcohol blood test at work one time. That was only because of coming home from work and having a very emotional and difficult situation at home. I know I shouldn't have drank that day. When asked at work if I was drinking that day I said yes and was tested. I lost my job there. I've been a nurse for 14 years and never was in any kind of trouble and NEVER drank before work before. I presently still work and I am a very dedicated nurse that loves her job. I don't understand how can they suspend my license for one mistake.
