Personal Benefits

Professional Liability Insurance

Many nurses mistakenly believe they are covered by their employer's liability insurance — until a lawsuit is filed and they find that no one is advocating for their interests. Protect yourself and your career with professional liability insurance. ANA has partnered with Mercer, a global leader in insurance, to offer liability coverage specifically geared to nurses. Malpractice judgment awards exceed $3.7 billion annually and are growing (Becker's Hospital Review, 5/3/14). Remember, you can be sued even if you did nothing wrong, and an investment in liability insurance will protect your future and the future of your family. Get the protection you need without paying more than is necessary by taking advantage of Mercer's competitive rates for full DNA members.
