Virginia, the “Mother of Presidents,” is a highly cultured, beautiful state that treasures its rich historical heritage and has always been a good destination for travel nurses, one Medical Travelers Inc. highly recommends. Ranging from the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah Valley to the tidewaters at its eastern edge, Virginia includes a wide variety of scenic landscape. Virginia's well-balanced economy includes military installations, cattle, tobacco and peanut farming in Southside Virginia. Northern Virginia (once Virginia’s dairy capital) hosts software, communications, consulting, defense contracting, diplomats, and supports the professional government sector. Coal mining is still done in southwest Virginia. Kaolin clay has also been mined at Willis Mountain and at Bon Air. Gold mining was once important, and, at its peak Virginia was the third largest gold-producer. There are no active commercial mines, but gold prospecting continues as a hobby. A large diamond was once discovered during a minor excavation in Manchester. Fifty colleges and universities dot the state, and over a hundred hospitals, assuring a travel nurse of having plenty of options. Pay is high, as are cultural attractions. There are many quaint sights to enjoy: the Tank Museum in Danville, the Luray Caverns, the world’s largest collection of cement lawn ornaments in Lynchburg, the the Jousting Hall of Fame in Mt. Solon, the giant milk bottles in Richmond, the world’s largest cured ham in Smithfield, and the Haunted Monster Museum in Natural Bridge.
