CNA Jobs in KS

The state of Kansas is in the Midwestern United States, bordered by Nebraska on the north, Missouri on the east, Oklahoma on the south, and Colorado on the west. It is named after Kansa Native American tribe, which inhabited the region at the time of European encounter. The tribe’s name (natively kką:ze) is often said to mean “people of the wind” or “people of the south wind”, although this was probably not the term’s original meaning. This is, however, a quite fitting name as winds are frequent here.

Formed by the Kansas-Missouri Compromise (1854), Kansas entered the Union as a free state on January 29, 1861. Kansas’s landscape is generally flat with little or no hills and few bodies of water other than rivers. In its agricultural areas, windmills are common. The state has an abundance of both hard and soft coal, limestone, salt, and clay within its borders.

When Europeans first arrived in what is today Kansas, the region was home to many Native American tribes. Tribes encountered here were of the Dhegihan stock occupying territory along the Kansas River in northern Kansas. For a time relations between some of these peoples and Europeans were fairly good while others were not so friendly. The outbreak of violence against settlers came in 1862 during the gradual western push of what was to become the American Civil War. Attacks came from pro-Confederate “Bushwhacker” guerrilla bands led by William C. Quantrill and ‘Bloody Bill’ Anderson who waged a terror campaign against Kansas, Missouri, and other free states in an effort to get them to secede from the Union.
