When it comes to honesty and ethical behavior, physicians ranked behind nurses once again, according to an annual Gallup survey. For the third year in a row, 79% of those surveyed ranked the trustworthiness of nurses "high" or "very high" – putting the nursing profession in the top spot. Nurses were followed by grade-school teachers (73%), pharmacists or druggists (72%), military officers (72%), and then physicians (67%).

At the bottom end of the trust scale were lawyers (18%), advertising practitioners (10%), and car salesmen (9%), reported Medical Economics (2/4/05).
