Nurses again rank no. 1 in gallup 'honesty and ethics' poll.

The nation's nurses have ranked first once again for their honesty and integrity, with 83% of Americans rating them "high" or "very high," up from 79% last year, according to an annual CNN/ USA Today/Gallup Poll. Following nurses were doctors and veterinarians, who tied for second at 68%, and pharmacists who came in at 67%. Nurses have consistently ranked first every year but one after being added to the poll in 1999. The exception came in 2001, when firefighters ranked first following the 9/11 attacks. Car salesmen came in last for honesty and ethics in this year's poll, preceded by HMO managers. The poll was conducted on November 14-16. For more, go to
