“I’ve had NSO malpractice insurance since graduating from nursing school in 1982. I have always been comforted in the knowledge that NSO was there if I needed them. Though I've never had a single issue, NSO is covering me on or off the job. I am able to work as a nurse and as an educator without worrying that my employers will cover me.”
Nancy, MSN, RN
“It’s such an emotional time when the care we give our patients is questioned. To have all the red tape just disappear helped more than anything. I felt well taken care of, knowing that NSO was helping me and providing the advice of a lawyer. I cried when they called to tell me my claim was paid promptly and in full.”
Susy, BSN, RN
“Working as a Nurse Practitioner, I was sued by a non-compliant patient. The best thing was having NSO malpractice insurance. From the moment I notified them of my lawsuit I felt protected and supported. You owe it to yourself to have your own coverage. NSO is the only malpractice insurance I will ever have.”
