2016 Survey Data

Nurses scheduled to renew their license in 2016 received an invitation to participate in the annual Survey of Michigan Nurses along with their license renewal notice from the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. Nurses who chose to participate in the Survey of Michigan Nurses had two options for completing the survey: 1) online through SurveyMonkey as part of their license renewal process or 2) a paper survey returned by mail to the Michigan Public Health Institute (MPHI). To allow sufficient time for completion, nurses were able to respond to the survey from December 2015 through May 2016. A total of 19,405 nurses responded.

The survey consists of questions regarding license type and educational background; employment status, including current practice setting; length of time in practice and plans to continue practicing as a nurse; and demographic information.
