Why do nurse educators need business insurance?

Other nurses depend on your training to do their jobs correctly, which means you could be blamed for mistakes in patient care. Nurse educator insurance covers legal costs if a patient or student sues your business. It can also pay for auto accidents, data breaches, property damage, and work injuries.

FAQs about nurse educator business insurance

Are nurse educators required to carry malpractice insurance?

Nurse educators rely on malpractice insurance, also called a professional liability insurance policy, to cover costly lawsuits related to professional negligence. There are several reasons why you might need this coverage:

  • State laws might mandate it. For example, all advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) in Florida must carry malpractice insurance, but it's not required in New York.
  • Your employer may require it. The healthcare facility you work for may require you to carry malpractice coverage, even if it's not required by state law.
  • Independent contractors are not covered. If you work as an independent contractor, your employer's policy will not provide coverage and you will need to secure your own protection against malpractice lawsuits.

Keep in mind that malpractice insurance is a claims-made policy, which means you’ll need to keep your policy active in order to benefit from it.

What other liability insurance do nurse educators need?

Nurse educators may need additional protection depending on the type of work they do and their risks. Fortunately, it's possible to modify your policy to cover a wide range of malpractice claims, including:

Consult a licensed insurance agent to find out about any exclusions or to add other types of liability coverage to your policy.
