Practice Characteristics of Rural Nurse Practitioners in the United States


This WWAMI RHRC study uses data from HRSA’s first National Sample Survey of Nurse Practitioners (NSSNPs) to expand on the agency’s basic descriptive analyses of rural and urban nurse practitioners (NPs). The study compares rural and urban NPs’ demographics, education, practice, and related characteristics; and estimates basic NP labor supply models.
