Still Most Trusted
Gallup poll reaffirms robust public trust in nurses
Gallup has kicked off the Year of the Nurse in style with new poll results demonstrating that nursing (again!) remains America’s most trusted profession.
Ethics and Honesty
If you ever find yourself feeling a little worn down at work, you can take some consolation in the fact that most of the people you encounter in everyday life, on the Metro or at the grocery store have extraordinary respect for your profession. For almost 20 years, nursing has consistently topped Gallup’s annual poll ranking the ethics and honesty of various professions.
The latest poll, conducted in December and released January 6, continues that trend: Eighty-five percent of respondents ranked nurses’ ethics and honesty as “high” or “very high.”
