Four new members to the National Advisory Council for Nursing Research, the principal advisory board for the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), were recently announced. NINR, a component of the National Institutes of Health, supports clinical and basic research to establish a scientific basis for the care of individuals across the lifespan. Members of the council are drawn from the scientific and lay communities, embodying a diverse perspective from the fields of nursing, public and health policy, law, and economics. An important role of the council is to conduct a second level of review of grant applications that have been scored by scientific review groups.
