added malpractice insurance?

  1. I read recently that faculty should have additional malpractice insurance with whatever coverage they currently have. I have had malpractice insurance for years and had never heard I needed extra coverage to be a clinical instructor. Is this new? Or is this just another way to get more money out of me?

    It seems if you have a policy and your school has one on you, that should be enough. Unless you're teaching on the MSN level?

    I have a regular policy and I think it is fine. What more insurance is even offered?

    Advanced practice nurses can have more complicated, and more expensive, policies.
