Nurses most respected profession

Nurses most respected profession

It will come as no surprise to members that the nursing profession has once again hit first place as the highly ethical and honest career path in a recent Morgan Poll.

The annual Image of Professions survey indicated that 91% of people surveyed believe nurses are honest and ethical workers.

Nurses have maintained the top position in the survey since its inclusion in 1994. This year’s figures are up 2% from last year.

Car salesmen were the lowest-ranked profession–a position they have held since the survey began in 1976.
