In nurse we trust. That, at least, is what a new poll finds.

For the seventh year in a row, nurses represent the nation's most honest and ethical profession, according to the latest annual Gallup Poll. Pharmacists and veterinarians round out the three most highly rated occupations. Each year, Gallup measures honesty and ethics for 14 newsworthy jobs.

The bottom three occupations in 2006 were car sellers, advertising practitioners and HMO managers.
