Nothing like sticking your head in the sand (so you can't see the nurses)
This statement illustrates the reality of the situation. There really ARE nurses, but these nurses will not work for less-than-desirable wages. They will either be compensated at an attractive rate or they will find somewhere else to work -- even if that somewhere is outside the field of nursing. With everything nurses are called upon to deal with, it is understandable that in the absence of being well-compensated, for many it just is not worth it.
