Understanding APRN Distribution in Urban and Rural Areas Using NPI Data

m Bookmark and Share
Information on the distribution of advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) workforce supply is needed to effectively address current and anticipated future shortages. This study examined APRN distribution using the 2010 Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) National Provider Identifier (NPI) data. For APRN roles whose numbers in the NPI data appeared to be sufficiently complete, the study described national and state-level rural and urban distribution and identified factors associated with rural practice.
