A recent report from malpractice insurance company CNA and Nurses Service Organization (NSO) found an increase in NP claims:

  • 2012 $285,645
  • 2017 $300,506 (5.2% increase)
  • 2022 $332,137 (10.5% increase)

The highest average claim total among NPs covered through an NP office practice ($402,000), which represents an increase from 8% of claims to 13.8% (from $335K to 431K).

The video also shows data from the National Practitioner Data Bank showing increasing malpractice and adverse action reports for NPs with declining rates for MD/DO physicians.
