CNA Jobs in MS

The name Mississippi comes from a Native American word meaning “great waters” or “father of the waters.” Mississippi became the 20th state of the Union in 1817. Jackson is the state capital. Mississippi is smaller than most US states and is bordered to the north by Tennessee, to the east by Alabama, to the south by Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico, and to the west by Louisiana and Arkansas. The Mississippi is naturally suited to agriculture; its soil is rich and deep, and its landscape is crossed by many rivers.

Until the mid-20th century, the dominance of rural, laid-back lifestyles was generally good for the country. This way of life is manifested in part in a culture of goodness whose legacy lives today in many historic centers such as Columbus, Biloxi, Natchez, Vicksburg, and Holly Springs. Still evident in historic buildings. However, urbanization and industrialization, and an enjoyable lifestyle have in many ways been an obstacle to Mississippi’s economic and social development. For decades, an unusually large dependent population, a largely agricultural economy, and general resistance to change have kept Mississippi’s per capita income low and created inadequate living standards for many families. In addition, the state was at the center of the civil rights movement in the mid-20th century, with fierce racial strife.

At the turn of the 21st century, about half of Mississippians still lived in rural areas, though not necessarily on farms, and the state still ranks low on many economic metrics.
