Nursing Profession #1 in Gallup’s Honesty and Ethics Poll – 18 Years Straight!

The American Nurses Association (ANA), which represents the interests of the nation‘s 4 million registered nurses, congratulates nurses for maintaining the #1 spot in Gallup's annual Most Honest and Ethical Professions Poll for the 18th consecutive year. The American public rated nurses the highest among a host of professionals, including medical doctors, dentists and pharmacists. Nurses taking the top spot in Gallup’s most recent poll comes as ANA celebrates the “Year of the Nurse” in 2020, which was designated by the World Health Organization (WHO) in honor of the 200th birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale.

“I am extremely proud that nurses everywhere have been bestowed this wonderful accolade by the people whose lives they touch every day. The fact that nurses have been consistently voted the most honest and ethical professionals is a testament to the public’s trust. We’ll work hard to keep their good faith throughout 2020 and beyond. I couldn’t think of a better way to enter into the “Year of the Nurse,” said ANA President Ernest Grant, PHD, RN, FAAN.

According to the poll, 85% of Americans rated nurses’ honesty and ethical standards as “very high” or “high.” The second highest-rated professionals, engineers, were rated 19 percentage points behind nursing.

“Gallup announcing nurses as the most trusted profession is not only another reason to celebrate nurses during the “Year of the Nurse,” but also an opportunity to shine a light on this noble profession. This milestone celebration offers a platform to raise the visibility of nurses and increase the capacity of the nursing workforce. Nurses occupy many roles in our society and are on the front lines when it comes to immunizations, natural disaster preparedness, shaping health policy, and advocacy,” said Grant. “For this reason, nurses are critical in improving the landscape of health and health care because an effective health care system is one that values all nurses.”

“ANA will promote inclusivity and wide engagement of all nurses throughout “Year of the Nurse.” This includes expanding National Nurses Week to a month-long celebration to elevate and celebrate the profession with all nurses and the public. Here’s to the “Year of the Nurse.”
