It's not just Nikon. I think you will find that Canon's 24-70 f2.8 USM, like the Nikon 24-70mm f2.8 does not have IS/VR.

It is probably not cost effective to add VR to this type of lens, also the kind of customers that buy these lenses are mostly advanced amateurs or professionals who can do perfectly well without it.
