CNA Jobs in UT

In Utah, mountains, plateaus, and deserts make up the majority of the landscape. The capital of Salt Lake City is located in the north-central part of the state. The state is located in the heart of the west and is bordered by Idaho to the north, Wyoming to the northeast, Colorado to the east, Arizona to the south, and Nevada to the west. At the Four Corners in the southeast, Utah meets Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona directly, the only meeting of such states in the country.

Utah became the 45th member of the union on January 4, 1896. Utah represents a unique episode in the settlement of the United States, the story of a religious group that traveled three-quarters of the continent in search of a “promised land” where they could be free from persecution. Salt Lake City is the world headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, commonly known as the Mormon Church, and the spiritual home of adherents around the world. Since Mormons make up nearly seven-tenths of the state’s population, the beliefs and traditions of the Mormon Church continue to profoundly influence many aspects of public life and institutions.
