Welcome
Like much of the country, Michigan is experiencing a shortage of healthcare professionals, and the nursing shortage is expected to continue to 2030. Nursing shortages are expected to become more severe as the Michigan's aging population requires more healthcare and as nurses from the Baby Boomer generation retire. This web site is designed to track the number of nurses across Michigan and identify areas with the greatest need for nurses.

This website focuses on data obtained from the Michigan Bureau of Health Services and includes all nurses who are currently licensed to practice in Michigan. This website provides information that illustrates the distribution of nurses in Michigan, both in absolute numbers and relative to the State’s population distribution. Information regarding the age distribution of nurses across the state is also included. The information is presented in easy to use maps, tables and charts.
