CNA Jobs in AR

The state of Arkansas is the most populated of the 50 states of America. It was admitted to the Union as the 25th state on 15 June 1836. Its capital city, Little Rock is also its largest city. The second largest city, Fort Smith lies along its western edge and has a population of over 100 thousand inhabitants.

Arkansas covers a total area of 53,179 square kilometers. This makes it the 31th largest state by area out of all 50 states. With an estimated population of 2,915,918 as at July 2014, Arkansas is also the country’s 29th most populous state and has a population density of 83.5 people per square kilometer.

As a southern state, the people of Arkansas are often called “Arkansans”, but they rarely refer to themselves as such. The name “Arkansas” is still used by its neighboring states.

The motto for this U.S state is simple, just like what is found on its flag: Regnat Populus (Latin), which means “The People Rule”. This phrase reflects the fact that Arkansas is a democratic state governed by its people. The capital city of Little Rock also has a more famous nickname, which is “The Natural State”, coined because it is located along the southern edge of the Ozark Mountains and was thought to be worthy of being called a natural wonder.

There are several universities in Arkansas including the University of Arkansas, which is the flagship university for this state. Other notable institutions where students can receive quality education include Hendrix College, Lyon College and South Arkansas Community College.

Arkansas has a humid subtropical climate, although there are distinct differences between its northern and southern parts. The far south is close to the Gulf of Mexico, while the northern parts are further influenced by humid continental air masses. Snow falls in Arkansas only during the winter months. In fact, this state has been ranked second in terms of highest number of days per year with snow fall.
