Nurses Rated As Most Trusted Professionals explores the reasons why nurses rank at the top of Gallup’s 2008 annual “Honesty and Ethics of Professions” survey for the seventh straight year.  84 percent of Americans rated nurses as being the most honest and having the highest ethical standards of all professionals.
