What Medical Professionals Need to Know About Nebraska
Similar to other parts of the country, obesity rates have been increasing in recent years. More than one quarter of adults are severely overweight with 376,000 people defined as obese. Nebraska used to be a relatively healthy state, but it has slowly been slipping down the ranks.
There is also a high rate of infectious diseases happening here. The number of incidents has increased 18% since 2010, which is especially troublesome for health professionals. Children are particularly vulnerable, so it is fortunate that Nebraska has solid immunization rates.
It is important to consider the good things happening here. Compared to other states, there are not many children living in poverty, which can help these young residents stay healthy. Many people are insured, which means there are higher chances that residents are taking care of themselves and seeing physicians regularly.
Not every employer required ACLS certification, but it’s becoming more common. Medical personnel who regularly handle emergency situations can benefit greatly from this course. It is quick to complete online and gives job seekers an edge.
The unemployment rate is fairly low here, but unfortunately employers are not offering many mental and physical health days per month. Taking preventive health measures like properly resting and getting breaks is important for everyone. Happier medical staff means that they are better equipped to do their job.
Diabetes is slowly creeping up in this state. Since 2010, rates have nearly doubled to 8%. This might not sound like a lot, but keep in mind that these numbers only reflect known diabetics.
Type 2 can take a very long time to develop, and it requires a fasting blood test to diagnose. There are many people who are pre-diabetic, or diabetic and do not know it. Around 105,000 Nebraska adults have been diagnosed with this disease.

Omaha is the largest city in the state, with 414,521 people (2005 Census). The total population of Nebraska is 1,826,341 people (2010 Census). Nebraska is comprised of 76,872 square miles of open plains and lowland in the eastern areas, and gradually rising plains and hills in the central and northwestern areas. The state flower is the goldenrod. The state bird is the Western meadowlark. The state insect is the honeybee.
Nebraska was first explored in the late 1600’s by French fur traders. From 1804-06 eastern Nebraska was explored by Lewis and Clark as part of the Louisiana Purchase. In 1812-13 the Oregon Trail was established by Robert Stuart. The first white settlement in Nebraska was in Bellevue in 1823. The western region of Nebraska was acquired by the United States by treaty following the Mexican War in 1848. Nebraska became the only state in the Union to have a one house (unicameral) legislature in 1937.
Agriculture is a huge industry in Nebraska. Sorghum, corn, wheat, etc. are all largely produced in the state. The grass and ground in Nebraska is fertile, and features more varieties of grass for foraging than any other state in the United States. Meat packing is a large industry as well due to the large number of cattle and hog farms. Over the years the industry has become more diverse with the changing in technology. Electronic components, auto accessories and other manufactured goods are now produced more heavily.
Still a largely farm and livestock center, Nebraska’s history is steeped in pioneering. There are a plethora of museums and historic sites for tourists to see including various natural landmarks, fossil beds, and more. Prominent historical figures and famous people from Nebraska include Fred Astaire, Marlon Brando, Warren Buffett, Johnny Carson, Richard Cheney, George Beadle, Malcolm X, and others.
