2021 Survey Data

A total of 38,242 nurses participated in the 2021 Survey of Michigan Nurses, which is slightly lower than the 40,821 nurses who completed the 2020 survey. There was a similar response rate to the 2021 survey as to 2020 due to a similar dissemination method where survey links were emailed directly to registered nurses, LARA emailed reminders, and nursing associations sent reminders. The distribution of responding nurses by demographic characteristics is presented in Table 1. Respondents were instructed to select all races that apply to them.
