That's not the case at all in Cali. We have set ratios for nurse/pt ratios and they're in demand, though the market has cooled down a bit. A registry nurse can make well over $150k if they're will to work hard and the hospitals had a need for them. They put in long hours for that but they're not all that smart and didn't go to school for very long.
The nursing schools in Cali generally pick students by lottery, so it's not the best and brightest that get picked to be a nurse. It's pretty scary. Most can barely speak English.
