LPN Jobs in NE

The state of Nebraska is located in the Midwestern United States, bordering South Dakota to the north; Iowa to the east and Missouri to the southeast, across the Missouri River; Kansas to the south; Colorado to the southwest and Wyoming to the west. The state has 93 counties and is split into two land regions: eastern Nebraska and western Nebraska.

Nebraska history is marked by several migrations and Native American tribes. The historic Sioux, Quapaw, Arapaho, Assiniboine, and Arikara occupied the state at some point. In 1803 when Lewis and Clark began exploring Nebraska in order to find a water route to the Pacific Ocean, they found the area occupied by the Omaha, Oto, and Missouri tribes.

By the 1800s Native American migration to Nebraska had ended due to white settlers flooding into the region. The first European to explore the region was Pedro Vial in 1796 while it took until 1854 for treaties with local tribes to allow for settlement of northern Nebraska. Also in 1854 Nebraska Territory was established after Congress divided the land from the Iowa and Missouri Territories.

The Homestead Act passed by President Lincoln allowed European settlers to claim land in Nebraska for little or no cost, vastly increasing the population of Nebraska. Within one generation immigrants made up nearly half of the state’s population.
Nebraska became a state on March 1, 1867. In the 1920s and 1930s, several large land booms in western Nebraska created towns that still exist today.

Nebraska’s history is also marked by its key role in the westward expansion of the United States. Several trails and roads passed through Nebraska such as:

-The Oregon Trail which runs along the Platte River in the state
-The Mormon Trail which runs through western Nebraska, passing by Salt Lake City is a branch of this trail
-The California Trail also passes through parts of southern and western Nebraska
-The Pony Express passed along the Platte River for part of its route. Nebraska was the central point where riders either left the trail to get fresh horses or took a steamboat down the Missouri River back east.

Nebraska is bordered by South Dakota; Iowa; Missouri; Kansas; Colorado and Wyoming. The state has 93 counties with several townships, extinct counties, and census areas in addition to 7 Indian reservations with limited sovereignty within the state borders.
