Well Welcome to SO CAL (soon)
I am a native Californian and I also lived in Huntington Beach from 1978-1983. My favorite hospital in the area is Hoag (they also have a web site). I have a friend who I believe is still a nurse mgr there. Also I worked at Fountain Valley Hospital It was an awesome Trauma center when I did my internship there as an EMT in 1982 now,...it sucks. I worked there in 1998 and I realized it had become your typical For-PROFIT-hospital it is owned by Tenet. Huntington Intercommunity, I'm not sure if it has that name still, it was bought and sold several times.
A good resource for nursing jobs
in Ca is Nurses Week. It's a free publication that I get at home. I know they also have a web site. They ALWAYS have a ton of jobs.
You're coming into a great market. I think every facility is offering sign-on bonuses some as high as 6K. There are also alot offering moving allowances. You may be able to get a plane trip out to interview too.
On a personal note you are not moving to a great place. It is congested. There are alot of transplants (no offense). California has become a glut of antisocial people. The beach areas have alot of crime, drugs and your basic thugs. Beware of the beach on Holidays. You may want to check out some of the riots Huntington Beach has had in the past. It was horrible, basically I lot of teenage punks causing trouble for the police.
I don't want to rain on your parade too much just be aware. There are some nice areas with family housing, but they're very pricey.
