Annual ONP Efforts and Reports

Transition to Practice (TTP) is an initiative implemented by the MDHHS-ONP in collaboration with Michigan Public Health Institute (MPHI) to increase the retention and safe practice of newly licensed nurses or nurses transitioning to a new area of care in all nursing practice settings.


The annual Michigan Nurse Licensure Survey has been supported by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) since 2004 to gather information about the supply of nurses in Michigan. Responses gathered are used to inform state and local decision-making about the recruitment, education, and employment status of the nurse population.

  • The below reports discuss survey methodology and results:

The Michigan Nurse Mapping website focuses on data obtained from the Michigan Bureau of Professional Licensing and includes all nurses who are currently licensed to practice in Michigan. This site illustrates the distribution of nurses in Michigan in easy-to-use maps, tables, and charts.
