Guideline: Malpractice Insurance - Students

Purpose: To inform nursing students of malpractice insurance requirements.

Description: This policy explains the fee that is assessed to non-licensed undergraduate nursing students for malpractice insurance coverage. It also describes the malpractice insurance policy for RN-Upward Mobility students.

  1. Students are assessed a fee annually to cover a group nursing student malpractice insurance premium during the time students are enrolled in the program. The student is then covered under a "Blanket Liability Insurance Program" with broad "Occurrence Based" coverage.
  2. RN-Upward Mobility students who are enrolled in the nursing major courses must seek individual malpractice insurance. The limits of liability must be $1,000,000/3,000,000 on an occurrence/aggregate basis. Students must have proof of malpractice insurance coverage before they can begin any components of their clinical courses.
