Abstract

In 2015, the United Nations created 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Sustainable Development Goal 3, “Good Health and Wellbeing,” includes 13 health target metric goals. This short report describes how advanced practice nurses (APNs) have addressed Goal 3 around the world. Given the variation in the APN roles internationally, it is important to capture common aspects of projects conducted during the first 5 years of this initiative. This report serves as a template for further evaluations of the importance of APNs in supporting global health policies. These findings inform how the workforce can effectively pursue these goals.
