    If you mean health insurance, yes, years ago. I shopped around, found a policy w/a high deductible and it worked well for me. I am healthy, take no medications so the high deductible kept the monthly cost low. I deducted the monthly premiums from my taxes. Did this for about a yr until my spouses insurance kicked in at his new job.

    If you mean liability nursing insurance, I have never carried this unless I was required to for a job which has been rare.
    If she was asking about liability insurance I would definitely recommend nurses have their own policy and not just rely on the employer's coverage. It is not expensive and it is a tax deductible expense.

    Agree.

    But this topic was exhaustively discussed / debated several years ago. Recommend anyone interested to do a site search and read away to their heart's content.
