- 0Apr 5, '12 by ruthalittleWhen 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.
