AUSTIN, TEXAS — A new national workforce survey has just been launched by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) to provide greater insights into nurse practitioner (NP) compensation and practice. After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the annual survey was launched on Sept. 2 with an email inviting approximately 230,000 NPs to contribute to the body of research about the NP role by completing a confidential 20-minute survey.

New this year, the 2022 AANP National NP Workforce Survey will gauge both practice and compensation — and survey participants will be randomly selected to complete either the practice or compensation survey instrument. All respondents who complete the survey will be provided free access to a summary of the results in early 2023.

“It is imperative that the voices of NPs are heard,” said April N. Kapu, DNP, APRN, ACNP- BC, FAANP, FCCM, FAAN, president of AANP. “I urge each NP selected for participation to set aside 20 minutes to complete this survey and be counted. The information provided will demonstrate how NPs positively impact their communities, and it will add to the wealth of scientific knowledge about the NP role.”

Data gleaned from the survey results will allow NPs to compare their experiences to that of other NPs in terms of practice settings, specialties, compensation and more. The survey will provide valuable insights about NP wages and an overview of where NPs make their greatest impact. This important information will also inform advocacy efforts to further advance the NP role.

NPs are encouraged to watch for their email invitation and submit their survey response by the Oct. 23 deadline. Questions about the survey may be addressed to
