- 0Mar 1, '13 by imaLvn2Where can I get malpractice insurance in California? Do you have to be employed in order to buy the insurance? I'm a new nurse, not yet employed, but would like to have that extra insurance to protect myself but I am unsure of where to get it and if its even possible to get it without having a job. Please help shine some light.

Nurses Service Organization (NSO): Professional Liability Insurance for nurses, nursing medical malpractice.
Proliability: Proliability.com - Professional Liability Insurance
In addition, many nurses who own their homes have purchased professional liability insurance as a rider on their homeowner's insurance policies.
