      Worldwide, COVID-10 devastated the lives of millions of people; in the United States (US), it pulled back the curtains of deeply ingrained social inequalities, bringing to the surface once more the much-needed debate on how to protect the health of people residing in the US. On October 6, 2021, amid this turmoil, the Council for the Advancement of Nursing Science (CANS) held its biennial Advanced Methods Conference. The conference theme was Inclusion by Design: Methods and Approaches Advancing Diversity, Equity, Inclusivity, and Accessibility in Nursing Research. The express purpose of the conference was to increase knowledge on different types of methods, designs, and frameworks and their applications in nursing science to incorporate diversity, health equity, inclusivity, and accessibility in all aspects of the research process as we strive towards healthy lives for all people. In this editorial, we summarize the sociohistorical landscape of the US at the time of conference and its planning and proceedings; introduce articles in this special issue focused on diversity, health equity, inclusivity, and accessibility in research; and discuss implications for nursing science.
