The data presented here were obtained from the Michigan Bureau of Health Professions and include all nurses who were registered to practice in Michigan. Michigan nurses are required to renew their license every two years no later than March 31st of the year their license expires. As such, each dataset includes a cohort of nurses with newly renewed licenses and a cohort of nurses with licenses that are a year old. It is important to note that each dataset includes nurses who may not choose to renew their license when it expires.

Data are organized below such that trend data are presented first, followed by detailed maps and figures depicting the distributions by state and age for each licensure dataset.
