The results of this year’s Gallup poll show that nurses are the most honest and trusted profession in the U.S., marking the 18th year in a row that the nursing profession has topped this list. To many, this comes as no surprise.  

Nursing in the U.S is not only one of the most trusted professions, but it is now also one of the most celebrated professions too. What we’ve seen during the COVID-19 pandemic is that the nursing profession in the U.S. is being celebrated and respected more than ever.

 From neighborhoods around the U.S clapping at doorsteps to show their gratitude and appreciation for nurses to U.S. companies offering free PPE and a variety of discounts to health care workers; U.S. nurses are recognized as safety-critical, highly-qualified and compassionate practitioners at the forefront of healthcare in the U.S. 

At Conexus MedStaff we know nurses are frequently the first and highest-level providers for primary care. The reality is that nurses have always been our heroes; our expert professionals who provide skilled, compassionate care. As the pandemic moves through the different phases of a crisis and eventually ends, we will continue to support and celebrate our international nurses and graduate nurses, by focusing on their well-being and fueling their career growth in the U.S. 

In times like these, when an estimated 1 in 10 U.S. nurses is from overseas, we recognize the many contributions international nurses have made in filling the workplace shortages in the U.S. and improving the nation’s health.
