Surveys and Studies of Advanced Practice Registered Nurses

Healthforce Center researchers have conducted numerous surveys and studies of advanced practice registered nurses, including nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, clinical nurse specialists, and nurse anesthetists. This research has examined:

  • The characteristics of California’s nurse practitioner and certified nurse-midwife workforce
  • The impact of state scope-of-practice regulations on the cost savings achieved by retail clinics
  • The availability of nurse practitioners to care for vulnerable populations
  • Nurse practitioner and nurse-midwife use of health information technology
  • The factors that affect rural nurse practitioners including job satisfaction and intention to remain in rural areas
