There is a shortage of nurses in most parts of the US and people want financial stability and job security. It's still in demand, even with the millions of RNs already licensed. It is a good profession for people interested in health care or human service. It's traditionally a female dominated profession that has seen an increase in men in recent years.

15 nurses retired last year at my hospital and we hired 37, we still have postings open, 48 of them. Nurses are overworked and underpaid. We need more

I don’t really understand the point of this question. We have a lot of baby boomer nurses that are retiring on top of a shortage. They will all have jobs. Mind your business

They're probably not really in nursing, but an 8/10 girl just says that to reiterate to you that they're out of your league and they want you to go away.

Eventually, the number of nurses needed will be more than the working age population, so even if everyone was trained as a nurse, there wouldn't be too many.

Why does it bother you is a better question.
Its probably one of the best fields for females. Many will raise kids and not work full time later on so the long term demand should still be there with an aging population.
I know a nurse practitioner who pulls down nearly $150k. Way more than I ever earned.

Maybe you are hanging out near a nursing school.

It pays well - my sister-in-law is a nurse and started at $80K per year. She's currently 30 and making $120K per year. There are constant nurse shortages, and that will likely increase as baby boomers needs more medical care, and as Republican destruction of health care in the US continues.

Because it pays well. Nursing programs always have a limit on the number of students. So shortages are the norm.
In most colleges and universities, you can’t even get into the program without at least a B in A&P.
