Health insurance

All Nursing and Healthcare Leadership students are STRONGLY ADVISED to have personal health insurance or join a health care plan to cover the expenses of their health care and treatments in case of a catastrophic illness or injury and/or the development of a serious chronic condition within or outside the occupational setting.

Students who do not have personal health insurance or a health care plan might be eligible to purchase Student Health Insurance.  Although personal health insurance is recommended, it is not required by the Nursing or Healthcare Leadership program.

For details about the program's professional liability coverage of students, see the "Professional Liability Insurance Protection" section on the UW School of Nursing website.
