Malpractice insurance is a must. A facility will only look out for you as long as it's in their own best interests. Should your best interests be different from their best interests, guess who's getting dropped like a hot potato?
And FYI: not having malpractice insurance doesn't mean you won't be sued, because you as the uninsured nurse still have plenty of assets that can be gone after in a lawsuit.
