A yearly poll that tracks public opinions of various professions finds nurses to be the most ethical and honest profession for the 11th year, with 81 percent of respondents in a Gallup survey ranking them as “very high” or “high.”
Nurses have been the highest ranked profession for 11 out of 12 years. “The consistently most positively rated professions, including nurses and pharmacists, have generally been able to avoid widespread scandals and, as such, Americans continue to hold them in the highest regard,” according to a Gallup press release. More information on the survey is available online .
