Gallup ethics rating for nurses hits highest mark ever

The results of Gallup’s annual poll on honesty and ethics are in, and once again, nurses topped the list. The profession exceeded its previous ratings, with a record 89% of surveyed Americans giving nurses very high or high scores for their honesty and ethics at the end of 2020. The rating is four percentage points higher than the previous high score recorded in 2019. Nurses have topped Gallup's Honesty and Ethics list in all but one year since they were added to the poll in 1999. (Gallup article,12/22/21)
