CNA Jobs in ND

On November 2, 1889, North Dakota was admitted to the union as the 39th state. A north-central state, it borders the Canadian provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba to the north, and the US states of Minnesota to the east, South Dakota to the south, and Montana to the west. The city of Rugby in North Dakota is considered the geographical center of the North American continent. Bismarck, located in the center of the state, is the capital.

The name of the state comes from the Dakota division of the Sioux people, who inhabited the plains before the arrival of Europeans in the 18th century. In fact, present-day North Dakota was originally inhabited by various groups of Native Americans who were hunters and farmers.

It later became the site of trading posts and settlements for those arriving by steamboat on the upper Missouri River from St. Louis. Even later, the area became rich farmland for Anglo-Saxon settlers (meaning European heritage, not specifically of Anglo-Saxon origin), and it continued to be land of large farms and ranches.

North Dakota is one of the least populated states in the country. Seen from above, it appears as an endless flat or undulating meadow covered with the black earth of plowed land, the green veil of new crops, or the yellow veil of ripe wheat. Although North Dakota’s climate is ideal for agricultural production, the state is vulnerable to major natural disasters (droughts, floods, tornadoes, and snowstorms) and remains highly dependent on government assistance. North Dakotans have generally been resilient, balancing realism with long-term optimism and seeking new methods of economic development while maintaining their love for the land and what it can produce.
