CNA Jobs in WY

Wyoming became the 44th state of the Union on July 10, 1890. It ranks 10th among the 50 US states by total area. It borders six other states of the Great Plains and Mountains: Montana to the north and northwest, South Dakota and Nebraska to the east, Colorado to the south, Utah to the southwest, and Idaho to the west. Cheyenne, the capital, is located in the southeastern part of the state. The word “Wyoming” comes from a Delaware word meaning “land of the vast plains,” an apt description of the state’s vast natural environment, home to almost as many pronghorns as people.

Wyoming residents are scattered across the land in small farms and farming towns, mining communities, and communities that offer unparalleled outdoor recreation opportunities. Every year, millions of people visit Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. In addition, the state has a low crime rate and little environmental pollution. One of Wyoming’s nicknames is the “Equality State” because it was the first state in the nation to adopt a constitution that included a provision giving women the right to vote.
