    Well most of the population is overweight. Nurses come from the population and so does every profession. You can see different sizes in ALL career fields, doesn't mean one job is going to be fatter then the next. I've seen many larger PA's and Physicians that doesn't mean that all PA's and Physicians are fat. I don't know but this PA should know better.

    Yes, most nurses are fat, in Los Angeles there is a radio stations that refers to nurses as big fat hypocrites. They take care of the sick and eat too much junk food. Notice in movies and films, Hollywood depicts nurses as big, fat and ugly. I can prove this over and over. Hollywood hates nurses. That movie Somethings Gotta Give with Jack Nicholson shows you what Hollywood thinks nurses are stereotyped as....big fat and ugly. There are thousands of films with ugly nurses

    The nurses shortage is a big fat lie! The hospitals are too cheap to hire, give me a break, you would have to be deaf dumb and blind to fall for that one. I know thousands of unemployed nurses.
