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

principles recognized by the public we serve.”

our national health objectives while providing job satisfaction
and job security.
