North Dakota is a haven for those looking to escape from the loud chaos of big city living. The Peace Garden State has an apt nickname, for it is indeed a serene setting. With a scant 646,844 people sharing an astonishing 70,762 square miles of land, North Dakota definitely leaves it residents with plenty of room to breathe and stretch their legs, which is undoubtedly an enticing perk for those weary of the overcrowded and congested lifestyles of major metropolitan areas. The state also is considered to have one of the most businesses friendly tax climates in the nation, making it that much more inviting for those looking for a fresh start.

Agriculture is by far the biggest industry in the Peace Garden State, providing the nation with its supply of barley, sunflower seeds, and wheat. No doubt that those who love to shelling and snacking on sunflower pods have North Dakota to thank for making that specialty item available in major grocery stores across the country. Energy is another big industry in the state, with coal mines still generating a majority of the energy used there. In addition to these industries, health care is also holding strong despite economic turmoil. Nursing opportunities are slim due to the sheer fact that there are not many residents to care for in the state, but they are available in the state's bigger population centers, such as Fargo and Bismarck. To become a registered nurse (RN) in North Dakota, one must obtain a diploma, associate, or bachelor's degree from an accredited nursing program. Then, prospective nurses must also successfully complete the NCLEX-RN examination to obtain a nursing license before they can begin professionally working. In addition, nurses are expected to provide fingerprint cards to the North Dakota Board of Nursing so that their criminal backgrounds may be checked.
