According to the American Nurses Association (ANA), “Nurses and other healthcare professionals persevered through 2021 and its obstacles, including the COVID-19 pandemic, staff shortages, and increasing rates of burnout, and their selflessness, drive and honesty have not gone unnoticed by the American public, according to Gallup's annual Most Honest and Ethical Professions Poll.

In results released January 2022, Americans ranked nurses as the most honest professionals for the 20th consecutive year on a list that included physicians, grade-school teachers, pharmacists, and other professions (January 2022)."
