In 2019, for the 18th year in a row, the public rated nursing as the most honest and ethical profession in America, with an 85 percent rating of high/very high, according to a recently released Gallup survey. These numbers are important because they contextualize and complement findings that show that patients benefit when nurses are leading and working to the full scope of their education.
