The collaborative work and the networked learning are a linking strategy of articulation and exchange among institutions and or/persons that decide to combine in a voluntary and concerted way their efforts, experiences and knowledge to attain common objectives. This exchange will have greater scope if they are supported by the information and communication technologies (ICT) as communication alternatives. The informatic nursing network of Cuba has several work objectives that allow the empowerment of these tools for management, assistance, teaching and research. The aim is to facilitate the articulation among the members of the network and their groups through an easy friendly platform encouraging exchanges and strengthening of the nursing activity, permanent education and research in this field. A literature and documentary review of the activities was made through recordings taken in the virtual room and the register of participants included in the database. From December 2011 to November 2013, one workshop, 3 Elluminate-based training courses, 8 virtual meetings and 11 teleconferences have been transmitted. It has been managed that the nursing staff gradually identifies the potentialities and the scope of this tool for scientific exchange and for academic activities, thus complying with the set objectives of the present paper.
