District of Columbia, Hawaii, Vermont, and Alabama in contrast, are the very worst states to work as a nurse, new rankings have found.

In another news,  for the 17th consecutive year, Gallup poll has identified nursing as the top profession for honesty and ethics. More than eight in ten (82 percent) Americans describe nurses’ ethics as very-high or high.
