This article describes the development of an advanced practice RN (APRN) council in a large hospital network. Despite obstacles, the council was able to demonstrate positive outcomes, which include standardization of the credentialing and onboarding process, productive networking, and an APRN-oriented education fair. The council has been able to guide workplace culture, establish and support vertical and horizontal interprofessional relationships, provide recommendations to relevant leadership boards, and develop standardized procedures.
