Students of both tracks of the MSN program must have proof of current personal health insurance and malpractice insurance coverage prior to enrollment in practicum courses and this coverage must be retained throughout the student's tenure in the MSN program. Personal health insurance and malpractice insurance coverage is required based on the policies of related clinical practice sites.
Students must have proof of health insurance coverage prior to enrollment and must continue this coverage throughout the student's tenure in the MSN program. All students in the MSN program are required to carry proof of health insurance coverage and be able to produce it on demand both on-campus and at off-campus clinical sites.
Students must adhere to the Mandatory Health Insurance Coverage policy administered by the University System of Georgia and participate in a discounted group health insurance plan; http://www.pearceandpearce.com/PearceSite/Schools/GA/clayton/PDFs/csuu1011.pdf. Students who already have proof of insurance can submit waiver; www.studentinsurance.com.
Students in the MSN program are responsible for providing their own professional malpractice insurance. Information about private carrier sources of professional malpractice insurance is available in the School of Nursing.
Students must purchase malpractice insurance coverage through a private carrier. Appropriate coverage is based on a dual designation of "professional registered nurse and nursing student" and policy limits of $2 million annual and $4 million lifetime. It is the student's responsibility to submit documentation of policy (including contact information of insurance company, effective dates and coverage limits) to the School of Nursing on enrollment in the MSN program.
