Gallup Poll Votes Nurses Most Trusted Profession
"It is with great pride that the ANA recognizes the trust placed in us by the patients we serve," commented ANA President Rebecca M. Patton, MSN, RN, CNOR. "At this time, when issues regarding the quality and availability of care are at the forefront of the national debate, we find it especially rewarding to see that nursing's integrity and commitment continues to be acknowledged."
Since being included in the Gallup poll in 1999, nurses have received the highest ranking every year except in 2001, when fire fighters received top honors. Results were based on telephone interviews with more than 1,000 adults.
