At the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP), we work very hard to keep our valued members informed of trends that affect their life as a nursing professional. We feel compelled to bring to your attention the widening scope of medical malpractice and the impact it can have on you and your security.
As a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner you face daily risks in the workplace. Even when you're performing routine duties like diagnosing common medical conditions or prescribing medications, complications can arise. An injured - or simply dissatisfied - family member may file a liability lawsuit against you.
Worse yet, charges may be totally without merit. In fact, according to a recent study conducted by the U.S. General Accounting Office, over 43% of insurance defense costs are spent on claims that have no merit.
But there is a very simple solution.
Whether you're self-employed, work for someone else or own a business or staffing agency, the Professional Liability Insurance offered through Nurses Service Organization (NSO) is clearly the best choice. It has more exclusive benefits, features, and discounts than any other program we know of.
We have given this program our official endorsement because we feel the program provides important coverage. I encourage you to give this special opportunity your serious consideration.
