Update from the Office of Nursing Policy

It’s that time again, a new year, and time for annual nursing licensure renewal. Those nurses who last licensed in 2017 should have received their reminder from LARA to renew their license. Nurses who have not yet registered their email with the system or changed email addresses since registering their email with the Michigan Professional License User System (MiPLUS) may not have received the electronic reminder notice sent by LARA.

In 2019, we are also changing the process for administering the annual Michigan Nursing Licensure Survey to include all nurses, not just those renewing their license in 2019. As a nurse licensed in Michigan, we respectfully request your participation in the annual Michigan Nursing Licensure Survey. This collaborative effort of the Michigan Public Health Institute; the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Nursing Policy; and the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, Bureau of Professional Licensing, is primarily intended to inform nursing workforce policy and planning and grant writers that utilize the data. Data collected includes the geographic, demographic, educational and employment characteristics of nurses in Michigan. The identity of individual respondents will be kept confidential. This information is crucial to ensure that Michigan has an adequate supply of appropriately trained nurses. 
For those of you who have not already completed the survey, the survey may be accessed using the following URL:
