Looking for the Pearson Report?

Unfortunately, we learned earlier this year that the Pearson Report has ceased publication. It has been removed from the WebNPonline site so we don't have historical access either. The best alternative for the state by state advanced practice nursing information that the Pearson Report provided is the National Council of State Boards of Nursing site - Here the information is not compiled as concisely as in the Pearson Report, so you may have to search a little more. The following links will help you get started:
  • APRN Maps - this collection of maps shows the status of each state in various categories such as title, role, certification and education. Use the links on the left to change categories.
  • Workforce Data - find information on the future of nursing, job growth, and occupational outlook.
  • Licensure Statistics - for RNs and PNs
  • Find your Board of Nursing - contact information is available 

Feel free to contact the library if you still have problems finding specific information.
