Most hospitals in the Bay Area have new grad programs that start periodically throughout the year. If I were you I'd check out:
Stanford...seriously check out Stanford. Great pay, great benefits, good philosophical beliefs about nursing, not as snooty as you'd think. I know they have new grad programs every six months.
Packard Children's if you want to work with kids.
Valley Medical Center as sanakruz said (like the screenname name btw!) great place for spinal cord and burn (EXCELLENT nurse manager/staff in burn unit), also good environment for critical care - level one trauma center - affiliated with Stanford Medical school. If your going for med/sug, be careful here...not all floors are created equal.
Don't let the "county" thing sway you too much - it's really a great place to work with decent pay (not outstanding) and excellent benefits! (I have a soft spot for Valley).
El Camino Hospital. Good reputation for treating patients and employees well.
My preference is a teaching hospital. AVOID Kaiser Santa Clara at all costs - having an asthmatic daughter, I've had very bad personal experiences with this place. Also avoid San Jose Medical Center - it's closing, and Regional Medical Center of San Jose (formally Alexian Brothers) at Jackson and McKee in East SJ - Both were taken over by HCA Healthcare, a for-profit company who sees only $$ and doesn't give a crap about the community - they're closing the only hospital in downtown SJ (SJ Med Center) because they don't think it's advantageous to spend 24 million to retrofit the hospital for earthquake safety! So sad. HCA Healthcare is the "reformed" HCA/Columbia that got popped by the feds recently for ripping off $$$$$ from medicare. Beware!
