RN Salary Portland OR

  1. 0
    Hello,
    I just moved to Portland. I got a job with an agency. They offered me $37.50 and hour. I have a total of 10 years experience. 3 years in Long term care, 10 in Acute Physical Rehab, and 5 years experience in med/Surg. I just moved from Pennsylvania, and I know that the cost of living is much higher here. Does this amount sound good to start out? Thank you.

    I am not familiar with agency rates here. I think on a regular med surg dayshift position I make about $32/hr, not including any weekend or evening differential and I've been a med surg nurse for almost 3 years. Good luck!

    Hello. I have a question you might be able to help me out with:
    I've been accepted to the Linfield nursing program. I have heard not so great things about students coming out of that school. As in, they don't know what they're doing... only how to read. However, I know this represents only 2 opinions... do you have any input?

    Thank you.

    What agency are you with? I am looking for agencies if an internship doesnt work out for me. I am a new grad and am not finding much for jobs in the Portland area.

    I'm not an agency RN, but I hope this helps:
    With 3.5 years of experience trauma stepdown and peds clinic, I was offered base rate of 34.18 for staff RN at a hospital (unionized, so they have pay steps).

    Check it out. I worked at a Legacy hospital for 2 years and I loved my team members. Good luck.
