NINR's Strategic Plan seeks to harness the strengths of nursing science to power an ambitious research agenda that will meet current and future health care needs and anticipate future health challenges and priorities. The Plan is intended to not only serve as a guide for NINR research and training activities over the coming years, but also to provide a vision for nursing science for the next quarter century.
