New CNPS Services

To our Beneficiaries:

As you are aware, you are eligible for the professional liability protection and legal services offered by the CNPS as a benefit of membership in the following professional associations and/or colleges: ARNNL, ARNPEI, CARNA, CRNM, CRNNS, NANB, RNANT/NU, SRNA, CRNBC or YRNA, or through individual access to CNPS protection. We are pleased to inform you of important enhancements to CNPS services. The most important are the following:

 1.  CNPS has recently increased the amount of liability protection available to you should you have to respond to a claim or civil action arising from your professional nursing services.
 2. CNPS has implemented an early intervention program. If warranted, action can be taken to assist you in addressing a serious problem before an action, formal charges or a formal complaint is laid.
 3.  CNPS services now include a pre-contractual review. If you are contemplating entering into a contract for services, CNPS legal advisors will review the proposed contract to help you identify provisions or requirements that may compromise your professional or legal obligations.
