If you're a soon-to-be NP grad, chances are, you're a little worried about the next steps in your career. Will you be able to find a job? And, more importantly, will the job be understanding of your level of experience as a new grad? Concerns about the amount of support you will have in your first NP position are warranted.

Sorry folks, I didn't intend for this to turn into malpractice week here at MidlevelU.

As I began doing a little research for the post I discovered malpractice is not an easy topic to cover. So, I stepped back to square one writing Medical Malpractice Insurance 101.
