Montana Among The Best States For Nurses

According to a Wallet Hub report, Montana is ranked among the top states in the nation when it comes to the best places to live for nurses.

This may come as a bit of a surprise, but per capita, there are a good number of health facilities, and with that number of health facilities comes a decent amount of job openings for nurses.
