Liability Insurance

Important Note: The information here relating to Liability Insurance only applies until October 31, 2018. Starting on November 1, 2018, practicing registrants, including Interim registrants and Employed Student Psychiatric Nurses, will receive comprehensive professional liability protection and risk management services from the Canadian Nurses Protective Society (CNPS). For more information about the change and CNPS services, click here.

Professional liability insurance is a requirement of Practicing registration. Please see the ‘Liability Insurance’ Registration Requirement document for more information.

The requirement for liability insurance differs depending on whether you are self-employed or not. CRPNBC uses the terms “self-employed” and “independent practice” inter-changeably to refer to registrants who work for themselves, rather than for an employer, in any aspect of their practice. Please see our Independent Practice/Self-employment webpage for further information about being self-employed as an RPN.
