Strong ethics fostered in future nurses in nursing school (NEW YORK, NY, Dec. 7, 2012) –More than two thirds of Americans say that nurses have "very high" or "high" honesty and ethical standards, a significantly greater percentage than the next-highest-rated professions, military officers and pharmacists, according to a national Gallup poll. In fact, this is the 11th year that nursing has topped the list. Nursing schools including Columbia School of Nursing instill the seeds of a nurse’s ethical attitude toward patients during their education. In fact, good ethics and good nursing are inseparable.
