NEWS & CASE STUDIES
Liability insurance change
As of March 1, 2015 professional liability protection insurance services that we previously provided are now provided by the Association of Registered Nurses of BC (ARNBC).
We will continue to provide regulatory practice consultation on matters such as applying the standards of practice and bylaws to self-employment or volunteer nursing roles. ARNBC now provides services related to insurance coverage, claim support and certificates of insurance.
In addition, we changed the professional liability protection insurance coverage for NPs. All NPs registered as practicing with CRNBC will be individually covered up to $10 million (within the limits of the insurance policy). In the past, NPs were covered up to $10 million, with an aggregated cap for all NPs of $20 million. Each NP now has coverage for up to $10 million, regardless of any other NP claims in the given year.
