      The National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) released the 2022 to 2026 Strategic Plan Framework to lead nursing research, training, policy, and practice toward addressing pressing health challenges (

      ). Guided by an intentionally inclusive process, NINR solicited feedback from a large and diverse group of stakeholders to inform the development of the Framework. Ultimately, the Framework prioritized narrowing the health disparities gap, a gap that persists despite decades of nursing research (

      ). The new Framework challenges nursing scientists to enact change by dismantling structures that perpetuate racism and impede health equity (
