We’re starting 2023 off on a high note. According to a recent Gallup poll, nursing is the the most trusted profession in America for the 22nd straight year.
79% of those polled said that nurses have the highest ethical standard among all professions, well above the second and third place rankings. The last time nursing was not the most trusted profession was in deference to firefighters post 9/11.
As a leading institution for nursing education, Johns Hopkins School of Nursing takes pride in teaching proper ethics and morals to our students that they will carry with them in their professional careers. Clearly after 22 years at the top of the list, it is safe to put your trust in nurses.
