Subsection 2.23(1) of 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).
Beneficiary status with the Canadian Nurses Protective Society (CNPS) ensures that Manitoba Registered Psychiatric Nurses, and Graduate Psychiatric Nurses, have 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 satisfies the CRPNM that the member has met its professional liability protection requirement.
