This chapter highlights a case example of Chile, which developed unique collaborations among nursing schools and nursing organizations in the region, with the Ministry of Health and with key country leaders to develop the advanced practice nursing role. Through these efforts, the Nursing Network of Advanced Practice Nursing for Primary Health Care was formed, with representatives of schools of nursing in the northern, southern, and central areas of Chile. This network is housed in the Chilean Association of Schools of Nursing (ACHIEEN), which includes twenty-four accredited and prestigious nursing schools in the country. Three summits were held among these collaborating nursing schools as well as numerous meetings with key actors, such as the Chilean Nurses Associations, the Chilean Medical Associations, the Association of City Councils, and the National Confederation of Municipal Health.
