Why Do RNs Need Malpractice Insurance?

Simply put: A patient (or their family) could accuse a nurse of acting negligently and, consequently, make a claim or file a lawsuit against her. When this happens, matters need to be sorted out—and this often means that lawyers will be involved. This will likely cost time and money, in addition to creating a whole lot of stress. Having the dedicated team at Cinch behind you can relieve much of this burden.

My Hospital/Practice Provides Malpractice Insurance. Why Do I Need More?

You want to have your own liability insurance because you want to have your own dedicated team whose sole interest is you—not your employer, other medical professionals, or someone else’s bottom line. Even if your employer provides coverage, here are some important things to consider:

  • If a fellow employee submits a claim against you, your company’s policy may exclude coverage for claims of one employee against another employee.
  • If you’ve changed jobs and a claim is filed against you for actions while you were with your previous employer, the prior company policy may not cover you if you no longer work there.
  • Your employer’s policy may not cover your lost wages accruing while you attend legal proceedings.
  • If a number of employees are named in the same claim, your employer’s policy may not have adequate limits to protect you and your fellow employees.

Having your own policy can help you feel more comfortable if a claim is filed against you. With your own policy, you’ll have access to your own legal representation, and the resources of the policy aren’t shared amongst multiple insureds.

How Much Would a RN Medical Malpractice Policy Cost?

Medical malpractice insurance policies for RNs start at about $65 a year. However, the cost of your specific quote will depend on a variety of factors, including your years of experience, education, state(s) in which you work, and time spent on the job.**

The best way to get an accurate idea of what your policy would cost is by filling out our quick online application to receive a quote. The process takes a minute or two, and—if you choose to purchase—your policy can go into effect any day you’d like, including today.

If I’m a Traveling Nurse, How Do I Get Insurance If I Work in Different States?

On your application, simply select the state in which you primarily practice or do the majority of your work. Your Cinch policy follows you across all 50 states (and Washington D.C.), so work performed outside of the state where you primarily practice will be insured under your policy.**

Do I Need Insurance If I Work for a Nurse Staffing Agency?

It’s a good idea to have your own dedicated malpractice policy, just like if you worked full-time at a hospital or clinic. Given the low cost of our RN policies, it’s a small price to pay for peace of mind.

Regardless, you’ll want to confirm if you have medical malpractice coverage through your staffing agency, or if it’s provided by the employer with whom you’re being placed. Then, read your policy to make sure that you feel sufficiently covered. If you notice any gaps in coverage or lots of fine print, don’t forget that we’re here and can help you get additional coverage—plus that added peace of mind.

Do You Provide Coverage for Me While I Go Back to Nursing School?

Yes, we do. There are two ways to do this. If you’d like coverage as an RN and as a student, you can simply purchase an RN policy and we can add a student endorsement to it. But, if you prefer coverage only as a student, we also offer a variety of student policies that start at about $14 per year.**
