Hi! I just learned state that I am in (and I'm sure a lot of others) require that all student nurses carry their own malpractice insurance
. Is the insurance that student nurse have the same that I might have as an RN? Also, about how expensive is it?

I think this insurance is included in our tuition for NS at the CC....do you recommend ADDITIONAL private insurance in this instance?!?!
Yes, I do, wdwpixie.
I always recommend individual liability for the student and nurse.
All malpractice insurance
policies have limits of liability. Other defendants employed at your entity may and probably do share your liability limits under the same policy. If you, as well as others, are named in a suit, your legal costs, including any settlement, could exceed your employer's shared liability limits. This would mean out-of-pocket expense(s) for you.

1. State of residence
: pick state from drop down menu
2. Select your profession or area of study.
RN/LPN/NP whatever field you are in
3. Are you a member of a professional association?
4. Select your status as a healthcare professional:
I was quoted for (annual premium) for 2 different states $30 and $36, worth it? U bet...
Unfortunately, the sue happy people have ruined it for us. Protect yourself!!!
