ANA congratulates nurses for maintaining the number one spot in the latest Gallup 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. This recognition comes as ANA celebrates the Year of the Nurse in 2020.  

"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 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."
