US Nursing: Kansas

 

Historically minded US nurses will identify Kansas as an agricultural state. Indeed farming is still important to the state’s economy even though manufacturing and other services have bypassed it. The state is nation’s top wheat grower although cattle and calves are the most valuable agricultural item. US nurses will see that meatpacking and dairy industries are major economic activities.
US nurses will read that the two leading industries are the manufacture of transportation equipment and industrial and computer machinery. Wichita is a center of the aircraft industry and primarily produces private aircraft.
