I can't really find a whole lot about this subject. I graduate next month and start my first job in January. How does everyone go about finding malpractice insurance and what is the typical costs for such? (knowing that it varies)
Google "malpractice insurance for nurses" and several companies will pop up. It is very affordable. I pay around $100 per year, and I've always been in maternal/child nursing which is a high lawsuit area, so my rates may be higher than others. I've had the same company since I graduated. They don't just cover malpractice, but they will also send a lawyer with you if you have to appear before the BON. I've never had to use it (knock on wood) but it's nice to know it's there if I need it.
I use NSO.
