Professional Liability Insurance (PLI)
All practicing registrants must carry professional liability insurance of at least $2,000,000 per occurrence. Regulated members must submit proof of insurance to the College upon request.
Professional Liability Insurance is also known as errors and omissions (E&O) insurance or professional liability protection insurance (PLP). The CRPNA utilizes the term PLI or Professional Liability Insurance when speaking of insurance.
Many employers carry PLI for their employees, CRPNA maintains a list of major Alberta employers and copies of their coverage. If you are employed by any employer on this list, you will have the required coverage required at registration and renewal.
If you are in independent practice or have additional PLI coverage because you have multiple employers or are employed for an agency that does not provide coverage, please keep you member home page profile updated with your professional liability insurance policy to avoid suspension of your permit.
All members must confirm they have secured appropriate insurance at the time of initial registration and are required to update their profile in the member portal to ensure an active policy is always listed.
PRIVATE OR SELF-EMPLOYED PRACTICE
If you are a self-employed Registered Psychiatric Nurse (RPN) in independent practice you are required to have specific PLI coverage for self-employment and submit verification to CRPNA annually as this is a requirement for entering into private or self-employed practice.
