A majority of Americans don't have a positive opinion of the healthcare system in America, but that doesn't mean they don't respect the individuals that work in that industry. A recent Gallup survey asked people which profession they trust the most, and nurses landed at number 1. More than 8 out of 10 people surveyed said they trust their nurse. Surprisingly, only 40% said they trust their Pastor or Priest. Here are the most trusted professions according to the survey:

  • Nurses 82%
  • Military personnel 71%
  • Grade school teachers 66%
  • Doctors 65%
  • Pharmacists 62%
  • Police officers 56%
  • Daycare providers 46%
  • Judges 43%
  • Pastors 40%
