Professional Liability Insurance


Nurses Service Organization

Every nurse should carry their own professional nursing liability insurance to protect themselves from the costs of legal and Board of Nursing action - even if they are covered by their employer. In the event of a lawsuit, your own professional liability insurance policy would provide you with an attorney, pay all reasonable costs incurred in the defense or investigation of a covered claim, pay you for lost wages, provide reimbursement if licensing board issues were involved, and pay court costs and settlements in addition to the limits of liability. 


First Loan Program through the Mutual Bank of Omaha 


The First Solution Loan program is one of ONA's newest member benefits that provides an easy way for you to pay off credit cards and other loans. Offering low, competitive rates and no annual fees, the program allows members to apply for consolidation of their balances into one simple-to-manage loan. The First Solution Loan Program is provided by First National Bank of Omaha – chosen for their dedication to providing quality products and superior service. Trusted for more than 150 years, First National Bank of Omaha is part of the largest privately owned banking company in the United States.

Student Loan Refinancing Through SoFi


ONA has partnered with SoFi to offer student loan debt refinancing at low rates, creating meaningful savings for borrowers. 

ONA members, friends, and family receive a $300 Welcome Bonus when they apply through ONA members' special link.

Refinancing is a great solution for working graduates who have high-interest, unsubsidized Direct Loans, Graduate PLUS loans, and/or private loans. Federal loans do carry some special benefits, for example, public service forgiveness and economic hardship programs, that may not be accessible to you after you refinance. 

SoFi offers a range of options to optimize your monthly payments, lifetime cost, or speed of pay off, all in addition to no fees and no catch. What’s not to like?  Check your rate in two minutes at ONA's special link.
