The College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Manitoba General Regulation requires that a member who holds a valid certificate of practice must obtain and maintain professional liability protection or liability insurance for a minimum of $5 million for each or occurrence or claim with a minimum aggregate amount for each year of $5 million as a beneficiary of the Canadian Nurses Protective Society (CNPS).
The CRPNM has entered into an agreement with the Canadian Nurses Protective Society (CNPS) to ensure Manitoba Registered Psychiatric Nurses, and Graduate Psychiatric Nurses, can meet this requirement by having access to adequate professional liability protection and a comprehensive program of services that includes legal advice, risk management services, and legal assistance related to nursing practice.
The CNPS fees are paid on initial registration and when a certificate of practice is renewed. The fee for professional liability protection (PLP) is set by CNPS.
The payment of the CNPS fee will satisfy the CRPNM that the member has met its professional liability protection requirement.
CNPS webinars are free to CRPNM members. To learn more about CNPS webinars and other educational resources, please click here.
