It seems to me that the most common question posted here is where to work in Portland followed by what is the pay. It seems to me that if you can navigate yourself to the Oregon section of allnurses you probably could have already thought of googling hospitals in the area. Most (if not all) post starting pay so add 50 cents to a dollar for every year you've been a nurse.
So here are some Portland area hospitals:
Oregon Health Sciences University (has hiring freeze until 2010)
Doernbecher's Children's Hospital (at OHSU)
Providence: St Vincents, Prov Medical Center, Prov Milwaukie, and now is about to own Willamette Falls Medical Center
Legacy: Emanuel, Good Samaritan, Meridian Park
This is all I can think of at the moment. But you can also go to careers.com and find a lot of current job openings.
I hope this helps anyone who is looking.
