There's been multiple, multiple postings here about how your own insurance protects YOU. From readings here about schoool nursing, your field is even more blurry grey than most others and you deal with too many parents who probably have their attorneys on speed-dial. Cheap but invaluable protection. Do it.

- Aug 31, '12 by NurseMinnieRNI just signed up with Nurse Service Organization.... NSO. It was fairly cheap with what seemed to be good coverage. Check them out!
- Aug 31, '12 by FlareNSO is only around $100 annually for me - i know it varies. I don't consider that to be unreasonable for 1 mil/6 mil coverage
- Sep 4, '12 by 100kidsI went through NSO as well
