Membership Offer: Professional Indemnity Insurance
The ACNP have partnered with Edgewise Insurance Brokers to offer ACNP Members assistance with purchasing their professional indemnity insurance, via an easy to use platform 'Express Insurance' that is applicable to Nurse Practitioners at competitive rates. In addition to above, ACNP members who are also members of the ANMF Vic/Tas branch and are working in independent practice can increase their Public Liability limit to $20,000,000 for only $121.00.
For example, if you have $10 million Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII), and $10 million Public Liability Insurance (PLI) through ANMF, but need $20 million PLI, you can increase your PLI to $20million for an annual premium of $121.00. Edgewise can also add business insurance, etc., without having to re-purchase PII or PLI and double up.
"I specifically used my own example as being a multiple policy holder in relation to PLI and PII. My business insurance required me to add $1 million of PII to it, even though I already have $10 million via ANMF. For me, this means not holding duplicate policies anymore, saving me around $400 per year. This is a great added bonus for some of our members, I encourage you to discuss your particular circumstances with Edgewise.”
Leanne Boase President ACNP, NP in private practice.

Why do you require Professional Indemnity Insurance?
Any false advice or mistake whilst providing treatment could lead to a lawsuit and claim by patient against the nurse practitioner or other provider. Professional Indemnity insurance (PI Insurance) provides essential financial protection for Nurses by covering legal defence costs and damages payable in the event of a claim by a patient.
Typical work activities may include:
- Assisting in first aid and emergency situations.
- Assessment and management of patients.
- Medication administration.
- Observing, taking and recording patient vitals.
- Assisting doctors, other nurses or other health care providers.
- Supervising other nurses.
For each nursing policy completed online Edgewise Insurance Brokers we make a donation to Monash Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
