It’s not necessary that every time you think of Nebraska, you would also think of the iconic staple drink Kool-Aid. The childhood summertime beverage originated from the city of Hastings where they celebrate a Kool-Aid Days festival for three days each August. As a Midwestern state, Nebraska homes Great Plains that run through the state, providing its residents excellent agricultural and ranching opportunities. Being the one of the major producers of beef, pork, soybeans, and especially, corn; Nebraska is rightfully nicknamed as the Cornhusker State. Omaha is the largest city while Lincoln is the state capital.


The state also offers great opportunities for the nursing professionals.There are several nursing programs offered in Kentucky such as DNP programs in two institutions in Omaha, NE. It should be noted that till 2020 there is an approx 30% shortage of nurses in the state, demand is exceeding the supply considerably. The Nebraska Board of Nursing is responsible for all legal and license matters.
