The Michigan Nursing Licensure Survey

2019 marked the final conversion to MIPLUS for nursing licensure renewal.  The Office of Nursing Programs (ONP) is also changing the process for administering the annual Michigan Nursing Licensure Survey. Beginning this year, the survey will include all nurses, not just those who renewed their license in 2019.  As a nurse licensed in Michigan, we respectfully request your participation in the annual Michigan Nursing Licensure Survey.  This collaborative effort of the Michigan Public Health Institute; the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, ONP; and the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, Bureau of Professional Licensing, is primarily intended to inform nursing workforce policy and planning and grant writers that utilize the data.  Data collected includes the geographic, demographic, educational and employment characteristics of nurses in Michigan.  The identity of individual respondents will be kept confidential.  This information is crucial to ensure that Michigan has an adequate supply of appropriately trained nurses.  For those of you who have not already completed the survey, the survey may be accessed using the following url:

The most recent Michigan Nursing Licensure Survey results as well as easy to use maps, tables and charts to illustrate the distribution of all nurses licensed in Michigan, both in absolute numbers and relative to the State's population, may be accessed using the following url:
