AUSTIN, TEXAS — The latest 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. The 2024 workforce survey was launched today, with an email inviting more than 200,000 NPs to contribute to the body of research about the NP role by completing a confidential 15-30-minute survey.

"Through the AANP National NP Workforce Survey, we empower nurse practitioners to share their invaluable experiences and shape the future landscape of our profession,” said AANP President Stephen A. Ferrara, DNP, NP. “By participating, NPs contribute to a robust dataset that illuminates practice dynamics, compensation trends and the impactful role NPs play nationwide. Your voice matters and your insights fuel our collective journey towards advancing NP interests. The data collected will also provide important evidence to help us strategically enhance our profession. Please take the short time it takes to participate in this critical survey."

Similar to the 2022 survey, the 2024 AANP National NP Workforce Survey will gauge both practice and compensation — and survey participants were 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 late 2024.

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 compensation report will provide pay by state and clinical focus, while the practice report provides credentials, conditions treated and prescribing patterns of NPs. The combined effort will provide valuable insights about pay parity and an overview of where NPs make their greatest impact. This important information will also inform advocacy efforts to further advance the NP role as AANP and our allies advocate for greater autonomy and other NP interests.

NPs are encouraged to watch for their email invitation and submit their survey response by the May 12 deadline. Questions about the survey may be addressed to
