Hi Trying to run wifite on nethunter and keep getting the below error

error: SIOCGIFFLAGS (no such device)

it then asks me to select a device to monitor either wlan0 or p2p0 when I select one it says "Done" then asks me to select a device again, basically a loop.

Any advice?

you facing the same issue as this as the internal wlan card is not supported for injection or AP mode, and need an external wireless card connected via OTG

...and other use external Wireless USB adapter with antenna

the requirement is reference to  aircrack-ng site for compatible drivers as it stated in its readme, you may want to check out. Need wireless card that supports packet injection

also see Nethunter faq
Can I use the internal inbuilt Wi-Fi device for Wi-Fi attacks?

Unfortunately no. You will need to use a external USB with a OTG cable if you wish to utilize any of the wireless attacks in nethunter. You will still be able to use the inbuilt Wi-Fi card as you normally could with the device.
maybe possible for monitor only (not certain though some mentioned possible).
Also do check out the "Preparing Your Nexus for NetHunter" specific to your model
