The AANP research program has been providing indispensable research about NPs and guidance for others interested in similar research since 1985. At the heart of the program is the National NP Database, the only comprehensive database of NPs practicing in the U.S. This rich and growing resource features details on clinical specialties, practice settings and more.
AANP members have access to the latest survey iterations and most up-to-date data at no cost.
The purpose of the AANP National NP Compensation Survey is to compile a comprehensive data set about NP hourly and annual compensation, as well as provide information about employment-related benefits. The 2017 AANP National NP Compensation Survey report is available to members in the members-only section above. Non-members can purchase the report in the AANP Research Store.
The National Nurse Practitioner Practice Site Census has been conducted by AANP every two to three years since 2002 to provide a current and essential characterization of the NP workforce.
In 2018, AANP completed the seventh iteration of the National NP Sample Survey. The purpose of this survey was to identify the characteristics and practices of NPs nationwide. The 2018 AANP National NP Sample Survey report is available for download by members in the members-only section above. Non-members may purchase the report in the AANP Research Store.
