Advisory Board Members & Association Partners Statement of Support


National polls have repeatedly named nurses the most trusted health professionals in the U.S. Nurses advocate for patients and strive to deliver the highest quality care. As working professionals, we are acutely aware of the importance of protecting our license to practice, the linchpin of a nursing career. When a challenge to our license or a lawsuit threatens our livelihood, we need trusted experts and leaders who understand nursing practice and the culture of healthcare.

NSO’s team of partners and professionals include nurses in clinical practice, nurse attorneys, nurse educators, nurse claim professionals and an advisory board comprised of nursing professionals who provide NSO with expertise, perspective, and data on the evolving nature of the nursing profession and complex practice environment. For 40 years, NSO and its insurance carrier partner CNA, have offered professional liability insurance coverage that is contemporary to the needs of nurses and advanced practice nurses combined with unmatched risk management resources including claims’ data, trends and risk control education that enable safe nursing practice and quality care outcomes.

NSO shares our passion for the nursing profession and safe practice. The 85+ associations who partner with NSO, the Nurses Advisory Board, and 500,000+ insured nursing professionals trust NSO above all other providers because of their dedication and track record in protecting nurses and advanced practice nurses. As colleagues and friends, we recommend NSO for all your professional liability insurance coverage needs.

NSO offers you protection independent of your employer. You can be confident NSO will have your back.
