Posted almost 2 years ago

December 7, 2020

2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET

Please join NSO and CNA to review their new liability claim report, Nurse Professional Liability Exposure Claim Report: 4th Edition: Minimizing Risk, Achieving Excellence, which addresses some of nurses’ most common professional liability concerns, including emerging risks and ways that nurses can protect themselves from liability exposures. This presentation is part of NSO’s Leadership Summit sponsorship and offers nurses 1 hour of CEU credit for attending.  Using case studies and claim data, nurses can examine top areas of liability through the experiences of your peers. Most importantly, this report provides you with immediately implementable practices that you can use to help prevent or defend against malpractice allegations, while also enhancing patient safety.


  1. List the leading allegations made against Nurses in malpractice lawsuits. Define the average incurred expense for Nurses in a malpractice lawsuit. Identify key risk management tools Nurses can incorporate into their practice.
