Odd that you say this, as many new grads from that area claim, here on AN and on nursing groups on FB, that hospitals in that area of CA are generally not hiring new grads period, much less to ICU or othe specialty. Glad to hear that it may work out for some

It is definitely a hard place to get a hospital job as a new grad, especially in SF, East Bay, Peninsula, Silicon Valley, South Bay... my hospital is in the outer Bay Area for sure, about 40 mins to an hr outside of SF. It's weird, they don't have an official new grad program, just a continuous list you can apply to, and sometimes they hire new grads, train them for 3 months, including extensive classes, but they don't call it a new grad program... who knows! LOLĀ
