TORRES ESPERON, Maricela. The networking in nursing practice: ¨Bridging the gap¨. Rev Cubana Enfermer [online]. 2010, vol.26, n.2. ISSN 0864-0319.

The networking is a strategy that links the linkages and exchanged between institutions and/or people who decide to involve voluntary and concerted efforts, experience and expertise to achieve common goals. The network is the result of that strategy and is an organizational and management mode, whose key features are: adaptability, regulatory flexibility, openness, horizontality, fluency and spontaneity of relationships. The incorporation of nursing to this modality has not been for no reason but has responded to factors that have predisposed including the growing dispersion and transience of information, the advancement of technology in communications systems and the need ¨ bridge the gap¨ between the growing number of professionals in the field of research for the foundation of care. This paper aims to clarify some elements related to the manner of articulation of networking and its contribution to the development of nursing.

Keywords : networking; nursing.
