Nurses Retain Highest Honesty Ranking on Gallup Poll
85% of those surveyed rank the honesty and ethical standards of nurses very high or high - top among the 22 professions included in the Gallup Survey.  Since 1999, when nurses were first added to the poll, we have received the top ranking each year with only exception - 2001 when the firefighters were #1 and nurses were #2.  Congratulations and thanks to all nurses for maintaining the best honesty and ethical standards!  Read the full Gallup Report
