However, if you are self-employed, or operating under you own limited company, you will be obligated to maintain your own PI Insurance as part of your ongoing NMC Registration. Many nursing agencies will require nurses engaged as agency workers to arrange their own cover. Our specialist scheme can provide cover for any nurses working outside of the NHS.
