Malpractice Insurance

  1. I just passed boards last month (RN) and I got a letter in the mail about malpractice insurance. Do you guys think I should get it? The letter gives me a bunch of reasons why I should not depend on my employers insurance and the offer sounds all good but to be honest, I do not have the extra $89 right now, I haven't even started working yet. How many of you guys have it and is it a good idea to get.

    Hello, tonet,

    This issue has been discussed many times here at Allnurses. You can do a search and see what the responses are.

    Now, I am a staunch advocate for having your own liability insurance. A small price to pay for the coverage and peace of mind.

    Check with NSO. You can get an instant quote online and the rates are very inexpensive in comparison.

    I agree with Siri. I would not consider practicing without it.
