State practice environment for nurse practitioners

Nurse practice laws and regulations are specific to each state. This interactive map from the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) provides licensure and regulatory requirements, as well as practice environment details, for nurse practitioners in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

These data expand on Dashboard Indicator 3: Removing Barriers to Practice and Care, used to measure the Campaign’s progress toward modernizing outdated policies (public and private), changing state and federal laws and regulations, and removing cultural and organizational barriers to allow advanced practice registered nurses to be able to practice to the full extent of their education and training.
