Hi All:

I will be starting as a school nurse in California this August. While I'm excited to have been hired, I am also a little nervous. During the interview the school nurse I was replacing mentioned having good . As a school nurse do you fine it necesary to have your own liability insurance?

I have mine through Nurses Service Organization and it cost about $100 per year. The website is www.nso.com. I would never be without it. Good luck in your new job!

I went there and it says its like 260/year with coverage of $100,000 / $300,000. Is this normal?

I purchased my policy through NSO about five years ago. The rates are based on what state you live in and a few other criteria (new grad, full or part time employment, time period licensed, etc). Hopefully another member with post another suggested carrier for you.
