Annual Survey of Michigan Nurses

The Survey of Michigan Nurses has been supported by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) annually since 2004 to gather information about the supply of and demand for nurses in Michigan. Information gathered from this survey is used to inform state and local decision-making about the recruitment, education, and employment status of the nurse population. The survey includes questions that focus on:

  • License type
  • Educational background
  • Specialty Certification
  • Employment status
  • Geographic location of employment
  • Current practice setting
  • Length of time in practice
  • Plans to continue practicing as a nurse
  • Demographics
  • Age

Nurses licensed in Michigan are divided into two cohorts, based upon the year in which they first received their license, and each cohort must renew their license every two years.
