Why do nurses need business insurance?

Working as a nurse can be a rewarding experience, but it also leaves you vulnerable to risks. Be aware that your employer's insurance, or that of a temporary agency, may not protect you. Business insurance provides peace of mind and financial protection against lawsuits and injuries that might otherwise overwhelm your small business.
