Nurse Recruitment: Nursing Most Honest and Ethical Profession

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, April 23rd, 2015

nurse recruitmentFor the past 13 years in the Gallup poll, the public has voted nurses as the most honest and ethical profession in America, a fact that can be used in nurse recruitment efforts. Americans say nurses have the highest honesty and ethical standards. Eighty percent of Americans rated nurses’ honesty and ethical standards as “very high” or “high,” 15 percentage points above any other profession.

Members of Congress and car salespeople were given the worst ratings among the 11 professions included in the poll with a 7% rating for members of Congress and 8% for car salespeople.

As more Americans gain access to health care under the Affordable Care Act, people are increasingly finding they can rely upon nurses to provide their preventive, wellness and primary care services.

Kudos to our honorable profession!
