    I wouldn't work without it. I have liability insurance through NSO. As a new nurse, it cost me less than $100 for a year. Well worth it.

    It's too cheap not to have it. It may or may not benefit you in a crisis (like most types of insurance, that have small print to exclude every claim)- but in this case, it's so cheap, just do it. (But be sure it pays for a lawyer if you are charged with a compliant, or are arrested for anything). It's not like 'health' insurance, for $800 a month with a $25,000 deductible!

    Thanks Racer. is liability the same as malpractice? I hope I never have to use any of it but do want to protect myself if the need be.

    It's essentially the same thing. NSO covers you, whether you are being sued, asked to testify, etc. It's well worth the money.

    I also have coverage through NSO, it is pretty cheap even after the first year, totally worth having even for peace of mind.
