This website was developed to provide information about the population of nurses available to health care facilities in Michigan based on rising concerns about the nursing shortage among professional nursing organizations and state agencies. More specifically, in 2004, the site was developed with support from the state of Michigan Nurse Professional Fund with the leadership of the Office of the Chief Nurse Executive and the support of Michigan nursing professional organizations and nursing stakeholders. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Nursing Programs continues to support the maintenance and updating of the workforce data on this website to inform efforts to ensure an adequate supply of licensed professional nurses and nursing educational programs throughout the state of Michigan.
