South Dakota does everything big. From Mt. Rushmore to the still in the works monument to Crazy Horse being blasted into a hill. Deadwood, recently the background for an HBO series, was made famous as the place Wild Bill Hickok was killed. Sioux Falls and Rapid City offer big-city conveniences with easy access to the peace of nature. South Dakota is among the Compact states, which means nurses from other Compact states can practice without needing to be relicensed, unless there are extenuating circumstances.
