CNA Jobs in IN

Indiana is the 38th largest of the 50 U.S states in terms of total area, but it claims to be the smallest state west of the Appalachian Mountains. Its borders are formed by Lake Michigan and Ohio River to north, Kentucky to south, Illinois to west and Ohio river again to its north-east corner. It is an important part of the Midwestern region of the United States.

The name of Indiana is generally thought to mean “land of Indians” given its origin, however this is disputed by some scholars, who claim that it is a contraction of “Île d’Inde” or “island in the Miami language”. The state ranks 38th of all U.S states by total area, and ranks 21st in population density, making it one of the more densely populated states in the US. It has towns located mostly on or near a square grid with surrounding rural areas and industrial cities.

The state is divided into 92 counties; the seven most populous being Allen, Elkhart, Lake, Marion, Allen and Hamilton. The highest point in the state is Hoosier Hill in Wayne County at 1,257 ft (383 m) above sea level and the lowest point is near Indiana Harbor just 15 ft (4.6 m) below sea level.

Several large lakes are part of the geography of Indiana, including Lake Michigan to the north, Lake Monroe and Lake James both part of the St. Joseph River watershed, and Lake Evans in Noble County. The deepest point of the state is Blue Spring which is 1,436 ft (438 m) deep – making it almost as deep as the other 49 states combined.

Indiana has several metropolitan areas and cities. The largest and most populous is the Indianapolis metropolitan area with an estimated population of 2,811,243. As of 2011, 34% of Indianans were under age 18 and 9.3% were over 65 years old, but these percentages are expected to drop dramatically by 2040 as a result of immigration and higher fertility rates than currently seen.
