NAPNAP POSITION STATEMENT
Position Statement on
Malpractice Insurance for
The National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practi-
tioners (NAPNAP) recognizes that nurse practitioners
(NPs) need access to affordable and adequate malprac-
tice insurance, also called medical professional liability
insurance, to protect themselves and their patients.
Advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) are
gaining practice autonomy and responsibility in an in-
creasingly complex health care delivery system. NPs
have a responsibility to protect the individuals they
care for and themselves by practicing within the scope
of practice as mandated by state statute, rules, and reg-
ulations (Balestra, 2012; National Council of State
Boards of Nursing, 2014). It is recognized that as the
workforce has grown, the number of malpractice
claims involving nurse practitioners has increased;
however, the percentage of claims has remained
stable and is the lowest among health care
professionals (LeBuhn & Swankin, 2010; Miller, 2011).
Malpractice insurance protects health care providers
and the individuals for whom they provide care. The in-
clusion of license protection defense is another impor-
tant component of malpractice insurance that is
designed to protect NPs in the event of regulatory or dis-
ciplinary action (Balestra, 2012). Although an employer
may provide malpractice insurance coverage, it may
not fully protect individual NPs or their APRN license.
Adopted by the National Association of Pediatric Nurse
Practitioners’ Executive Board on February 17, 2015. This
document replaces the 2009 NAPNAP Position Statement on
Malpractice Insurance for Nurse Practitioners.
All regular position statements from the National Association of
Pediatric Nurse Practitioners automatically expire 5 years after
publication unless reaffirmed, revised, or retired at or before

Therefore, NPs are encouraged to analyze employer-
provided coverage to determine whether carrying indi-
vidual malpractice insurance is warranted (Barry, 2006;
Buppert, 2007; Liguori & Jones, 2006). NPs have a
responsibility to understand the malpractice risks in
their own work setting and to be aware of the type of
coverage afforded by their employer-provided and/or
individual malpractice policies.
NPs provide a range ofservicesand activities that have
the potential to affect their patients, positively or ad-
versely. Patients have legal rights to receive adequate
and appropriate diagnosis and treatment or referral to
a specialist that is consistent with the expected stan-
dard of care (National Association of Insurance
Commissioners, 2014). If they believe they have not re-
ceived such care from the NP, they can file a legal claim
against him/her. Complaints may also be registered at
state Boards of Nursing (Balestra, 2012). Some of these
claims may be warranted, and if the claim is so judged,
malpractice insurance can pay for the NP’s legal fees
and pay the patient damages awarded and legal fees
that are assessed by the defense and prosecution, subject
to the limits of the policy or policies. Any claims resulting
in a monetary settlement or judgment are also subject to
reportingintheNationalPractitioner Data Bank(NPDB).
The NPDB is subject to review with licensure, hiring, or
certification to participate in government programs such
as Medicaid. Provider identification within the NPDB is
viewed as reflective of negative past performance and
has implications foranNP’sfuture practice opportunities
(Jordan, Quraishi, & Liao, 2013). Therefore, it is impor-
tant for protection of both the NP and the public that
NPs understand the implications of both malpractice
claims and settlements and for NPs to be covered by ad-
equate malpractice insurance.
NAPNAP advocates that:
� All NPs should have access to affordable malpractice
insurance. NAPNAP supports affordable insurance
rates for NPs.
July/August 2015 11A
� Employers have a responsibility to provide malprac-
tice insurance coverage to NP employees.
� NPs have the responsibility to understand the Nursing
Practice Act and malpractice laws in the state(s) in
which they are licensed and/or practicing.
� NPs have the responsibility to understand the mal-
practice coverage requisites applicable to their provi-
sion of professional health care services.
� NPs have an obligation to consider the role of license
protection coverage as it relates to their malpractice
� NPs should obtain continuing education in risk as-
sessment and reduction on a regular basis.
� NP programs should incorporate education related to
risk assessment, liability, and malpractice insurance
� Research and data collection related to NP malprac-
tice liability should continue and be published to im-
prove NPs’ knowledge about malpractice.
� NPs should support legislation at the state and na-
tional level to ensure malpractice insurance is afford-
able and obtainable for all health care providers.
NPs have a responsibility to ensure that the malprac-
tice insurance coverage applicable to their provision of
professional health care services is sufficient to protect
themselves and the individuals they care for. NAPNAP’s
mission is to empower pediatric nurse practitioners and
their health care partners to enhance child and family

EDUCATION TEACHING PRACTICUM 6
Coping strategies of nurses in the ICU when faced with the death of pediatric patients.
Coping strategies of nurses in the ICU when faced with the death of pediatric patients.
Objectives for and standards of the lessons
Patient-centered Care: Show empathy with the grief of the patient’s relatives.
Teamwork and Collaboration: Demonstrate assertive communication with family members and other professionals at pediatric patients’ end of life.
Evidence-Based Practice: Adequate ability to understand the concept of diagnosis, grief, and death
Quality Improvement: Identify risk factors and precipitants to reduce the probability of recurrence in future cases.
Safety: Minimize the suffering of the pediatric patient through Best-practice.
Informatics: Report all events surrounding the patient’s death.
The theory that will be used to guide the lesson is Elisabeth Kuebler ross’s nursing theory. The Elisabeth Kuebler Ross nursing theory was proposed in the 1960s where she proposed five distinctive stages that people go through after they have lost a loved one. In the theory, the first stage is the denial stage, which helps people who have lost loved ones to reduce pain. The second stage is anger which is a common emotional feeling when one starts to ask why the beloved person died. In this stage, people who lost a loved one try to adjust to a new situation that might be hard for them. The third stage is bargaining, where people tend to bargain with anything around them so that they can be able to relieve the pain they are feeling. The fourth stage of grief is depression that develops as the events of loss sink into an individual. The last stage of griefing is acceptance, where people acknowledge that they have lost a loved one and plan on how to move on with life without the person (Corr, 2018S).
Describe student audience
Novice nurses in pediatric ICU unit with basic practical functions and support to experienced nurses. These nurses lack experience with pediatric patients in the ICU unit; hence they are undertaken through general rules that will enable them to perform various procedures.
Demographics of the student nurses
The nurses are aged between thirty years and forty years. The nursing group comprises both men and women who have little or no experience in ICU pediatric.
Interventions may be needed to account for varied learning styles.
In the learning process, the educator will need to involve different interventions to account for the different learning styles. Therefore, VARK MODEL will be used to identify the transverse learning style in the group. One of the interventions is to know and understand the students’ different learning abilities. Once the appropriate learning style for the group has been identified, the educator will provide unique experiences that allow the learners to think critically to understand the concepts being taught. Also, the learners will work on their own and use the multisensory approach to grasp the concepts discussed in the topic.
How to present information to students?
One of the ways to be present information to the students is through taking the multisensory approach. Using a multisensory approach allows tot the educator to provide the learners with real-clinic examples to understand the concepts of grief, dead, end life. The use of multi-visuals as videos will help in presenting information to the students. Another way to present information to the students is through the use of digital printable materials that are easily accessible to the students.
What visuals will you source, and how will you relay the content clearly and concisely?
One of the visuals that I will source Is the PowerPoint presentation. With PowerPoint presentation, I will relay information clearly and precisely through slides containing information in point form and explained well in the speaker notes section about pediatric death. The slides will also contain graphic images, which will help the learners understand the concepts addressed in each slide. Another visual that I will use are charts that include the various information about risk and precipitants factor related to pediatric death. The charts will have drawings and explanations of what the drawings are about. I will relay the content clearly and concisely by ensuring that the language used in the video is common with the learners and the speaker is audible enough.
Preliminary ideas for assessing students, both informally during the lesson and a summative component that can be administered upon completion of the lesson or unit
One of the preliminary informal assessment methods that I will use in class is quizzes and questions that I will be asking in class. Another preliminary informal assessment method is writing samples. The writing samples during the class period will help to reflect the understanding of each learner. Also, discussion questions will help assess the learners. The summative components that I will use to assess the students include the mid-term and end-of-term exams, which will be administered at specific intervals throughout the learning period. I will use a cumulative project paper that will be developed within a specified period to determine the students’ understanding of concepts learned.
