Sprawling green fields and tree-covered cliffs make up the landscape of most of Wisconsin – that is, the parts that have not been converted into bustling metropolitan areas. The state is home to several state parks and scenic trails that draw in visitors as well as residents simply looking to get away from the city. Though long famed for its dairy cows and cheese, those living in America's Dairyland are not all farmers or cheese makers. In fact, Milwaukee, the state's largest city, is a just as urbanized as any other big city, complete with a stunning skyline and crowds of city dwellers. Milwaukee also boasts a diversity of residents, which makes for a more culturally rich city filled with varying shops and restaurants. As to be expected, some rather eclectic people have emerged from this rather eclectic state. For one, Harry Houdini, the famous magician and escape artist, was raised for a time in Appleton. Houdini even later claimed that he was born there, though this was not true.

Manufacturing and agriculture are two big industries driving the state's economy. Transportation equipment and machinery manufacturing in Wisconsin serve as fiscal breadwinners. The state is also the nation's leader in paper product production. In agriculture, cheese, milk, and butter are the leading products, thanks to the abundance of dairy farms scattered throughout the rural parts of the Badger State. Health care is another big industry creeping into power due to the increasing number of residents reaching retirement and elderly ages. The demand for health care professionals will continue to grow well into the next decade. In order to become a registered nurse (RN) in Wisconsin, one must obtain a diploma, associate, or bachelor's degree from a program approved by the Wisconsin Board of Nursing. Then, prospective nurses must also successfully complete the NCLEX-RN examination to obtain a nursing license.
