Nebraska, the Cornhusker State, is 16th in terms of area in the whole nation and is a lowly populated state.

The Nebraska territory gained its statehood, after approving the US constitution, on 1st March 1867.

Nebraska State is facing population drought in several rural areas with more and more people migrating towards more urbanized and developed counties in the state.

The state is highly employed mainly due to its agricultural sector with a meager 4.6% unemployment rate.

Nebraska’s economy is also governed mostly by the agricultural sector.

Motor Manufacturing is also another major contributor in economy revenues.

A lot of medical and health care facilities have established in past few years proving boost to the growth of health care industry in the state.

This has also led to increase in burden of the Nebraska Board of Nursing.
