    I am a LVN (working part time) and LVN-RN student in California. I pay $99.50/year for 1,000,000/6,000,000 with NSO. This coverage is for my part time work AND for the LVN-RN. Pretty good deal.

    HI, I'm a new LVN with a year and 4 months experience. I live in Temecula CA, (Southern California). I was told in nursing school that this field in recession proof and about all the jobs that were out there..... I have since found that, that is NOT the case. LVN have been fazed out of Hospitals and the facilities that do accept LVN's are few and far between and require 1-2 yrs outpatient care or acute care. Is anyone else other there experiencing the same problem. I love what I do but I'm beginning to believe RN is the only way to go!

    Sincerely,
    Frustrated In Temecula

    When I was in school we had to show proof of malpractice insurance, along with current CPR certification. I don't remember how much it was at a student rate.
    My current malpractice insurance as an LPN in Illinois was $107 for this year. It's through nso.
    I'm not REQUIRED to carry malpractice insurance, and my employer has malpractice insurance, but I would not feel comfortable unless I had my own coverage. Having my own insurance means that, God forbid, someone should ever make an accusation against me, I would have an attorny to represent ME, not the company AND me.
    Also, you can clain it as a deduction on your taxes.

    As an employer I would NEVER consider hiring a LPN or RN without them carrying their own malpractice insurance. The insurance employers provide does cover a portion of legal expenses but most employers require nurses carry their own and it is foolish not too.

    Consider applying now as sometimes there is a waiting period for the coverage to take effect.
