NINR prioritizes health equity in strategic plan

The National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) announced the release of its 2022-2026 Strategic Plan, which prioritizes five “research lenses.” They are health equity, social determinants of health, population and community health, prevention and health promotion, and systems and models of care. “We believe the lenses leverage the strengths of nursing research and promote multilevel approaches, cross-disciplinary and -sectoral collaboration, and community engagement in research,” the announcement stated. The plan is designed to build on nursing’s expertise in biological, behavioral, social and public health sciences. (NINR announcement, 5/6/22)
