LPN Jobs in TX

Texas became the 28th state of the union in 1845. Texas occupies the south-central segment of the country and is the largest state in area except for Alaska. The state extends nearly 1,000 miles (1,600 km) from north to south and about the same distance from east to west. Water delineates many of its borders. The wriggling course of the Red River makes up the eastern two-thirds of Texas’s boundary with Oklahoma to the north, while the remainder of the northern boundary is the Panhandle, which juts northward, forming a counterpart in the western part of that state. The Sabine River forms most of Louisiana’s western boundary with Texas, and the Rio Grande forms much of the remainder of that boundary.

Texas’s eastern boundary is formed by the Gulf of Mexico, which gives Texas direct access to the ocean. The southern boundary consists mostly of two straight lines: a segment drawn due east from the Rio Grande’s mouth on Aransas Bay and another drawn south and west from the mouth of the Rio Grande. The southwest boundary is formed by the drainage divide that separates the headwaters of streams flowing south into the Rio Grande from those flowing east to bays and estuaries along with Padre Island and Mustang and Padre islands, which form barrier beaches protecting Corpus Christi Bay and Aransas Bay. The northern boundary is formed by the Red River and Panhandle, and the northwest boundary is marked by a general north-south line that roughly parallels the course of the Rio Grande.

The physical region known as Texas includes not only the state but also parts of adjacent states. Eastward lies a narrow strip of plainland (the Eastern Cross Timbers) that separates the Grand Prairie in Texas from the prairies of central Oklahoma. The boundary between Texas and New Mexico, which extends far into the western United States, is essentially a straight line that runs southeastwardly along or near the 103° west longitude line. Westward it becomes increasingly mountainous until it blends into the high plateaus and mighty ranges of the Sierra Madre Occidental (in Mexico). A small panhandle that extends west into New Mexico is included in Texas.
