Hi Karen ... is there a reason that you are so anxious to get liability insurance? In most cases, you are covered by your employer. Of course, there are many nurses that advocate getting liability insurance because the hospital insurance is focused on the interest of the hospital and not the nurse.
The reason I want to get insurance is that my professors (in North Carolina) said it USED to be the case that nurses were covered by their employers, but now, things are different. Nurses can now be individually sued and their employers may very well not cover them. So getting insurance has been on my to-do list since graduation and I need to get it done and mark it off of my list!
I do not want to get into a discussion here about whether or not insurance is necessary...there is another active discussion thread on that topic! Just wanted tips on companies to contact - so thank you for the CNA tip. Do you know what "CNA" stands for? That info might make it easier to find them online.
I found NSO online before posting. The rate
(esp. for a new grad) was good. But does anyone know how its coverage
compares to other companies' coverage?
