On March 1, 2013 the professional liability insurance claim limit for nurse practitioners doubled from $5 million to $10 million. The amount of coverage provided ($10M instead of $5M) is the only change to the NP insurance policy. This change brings the coverage to a level required in the evolving practice of NPs.
NPs buy professional liability insurance from the College as part of their annual registration fee. Insurance coverage is through Encon, a third-party insurance provider.
If you are an NP with questions about the policy or your individual coverage, please contact the College.
