The essentials and benefits of having professional malpractice insurance

What is Professional Malpractice Insurance for Nurse Educators?

Nurse educators face the risk of liability lawsuits from other faculty members in addition to students. Nurse educators do meaningful work to strengthen the nursing workforce. Nurse educator malpractice insurance is essential for for protection against potential negligence claims and ease of mind.

What Risks Do I Face as A Nurse Educator That Warrants Professional Malpractice Insurance?

Nurse educators are responsible for designing, implementing, evaluating, and revising educational programs for nurses. Nurse educators may teach general nursing classes, or they might focus on specialized areas of nursing, like pediatric nursing, psychiatric nursing, trauma, diabetes, nursing informatics, and more. Since nurse educators may also be held liable for nursing student malpractice, they face an increased risk of potential claims. Whatever coverage they may receive from the teaching institution, the wisest choice might be for nurse educators to have personal malpractice insurance coverage as well. Whatever the choice, virtually all nursing providers need professional liability insurance policies for personal protection, both for financial and career security.

Why Do I Need Professional Liability Insurance for Nurse Educators?

Nurse educators are registered nurses or licensed practical nurses who have advanced nursing degrees, allowing them to teach in a nursing curriculum at colleges and universities. Because nursing school faculty can be held accountable for nursing students’ negligence or malpractice, maintaining consistent and comprehensive liability insurance for nurse educators is important. Many nurse faculty members have found that employer coverage cannot be solely relied on. Usually, an employer’s insurance does not provide enough coverage, and in some situations, it doesn’t provide any coverage at all. Our nurse educator liability insurance policy is designed to protect personal assets from potential claims or lawsuits. Plus, personal nurse educator professional liability policies can be portable, giving flexibility through changes in employment to ensure continual coverage.
