Personal malpractice insurance?

  1. 0
    I am a last semester student and am just lining my ducks up in a row....I know the benefits of personal malpractice insurance (or at least I think I do, so feel free to provide insight as well)...but I have no idea what companies, what to look for, etc?

    At what point of the new process should I look for it? After job offer but before I hit the floor or after I hit the floor? Or after orientation is completed?

    What companies are good? Which ones are unsavory or leave something to be desired?

    Thanks for any insight!

    There are a bunch of existing threads here about the pros and (supposed) cons of personal professional liability insurance. The two companies that get mentioned most often, that deal specifically with professional liability insurance for nurses and other healthcare providers are NSO (Nurses Service Organization) and Marsh. Other members have posted here occasionally that they have coverage through a rider on their homeowner's insurance, but I have no idea how that would work -- I prefer to deal with a company with experience in dealing specifically with nurses and professional liability.

    I looked for threads on it and only managed to see things related to the pros and cons of having it but couldn't find any recent company names.

    Thanks for the info! I just want to have an idea of where to look and who is reputable in the business. Would hate to be a new grad and scammed!
