For the seventh consecutive year, nurses were voted the most trusted profession in America in Gallup's annual survey of professions for their honesty and ethical standards. Eighty-four percent of Americans believe nurses’ honesty and ethical standards are either "high" or "very high."

“It’s a proud day for nurses and for nursing,” remarked ANA President Rebecca M. Patton, MSN, RN, CNOR. “The fundamental principles of nursing are compassion and respect for the individual patient. They are what inspire each nurse to strive to promote health, prevent illness and alleviate suffering. It’s gratifying to see those principles recognized by the public we serve.”

Whether your passion is providing relief in a natural disaster or addressing teen pregnancy in your community, the nursing profession has an opportunity for you on the front line. Nurses today are practicing in homes, schools, helicopters and hospitals. Diversity of nursing roles allows for greater avenues in achieving our national health objectives while providing job satisfaction and job security.

If you desire to make a difference in the world, and you seek passion from your work, then we challenge you to consider a career in nursing.
