Why does Juliet still have a nurse?

The Nurse's affection for Juliet stems from the fact that she had a daughter named Susan who was the same age as Juliet, but who died young. The Nurse remains Juliet's ally to the end, and suffers greatly when she, along with the rest of the Capulet household, believes Juliet dead. The Nurse is also a comic figure.

How old is the nurse in Romeo and Juliet?

The nurse's age is not given in the play, but we know that she is old. She gave birth to a daughter who was the same age as Juliet and who died; therefore, the nurse was able to nurse Juliet. The nurse makes references to her age; for example, she says "how my bones ache" when Juliet sends the nurse after Romeo.
