Butterflykissesxo - Suggestion: apply as soon as possible for your California license - it can take 6-8 weeks to actually get it. I am sure you have heard the job market in San Francisco is very competitive. If you do not have at least 2 years of RN experience, it can take a very long time, if luck is on your side, to get an interview. As a new grad with a BSN, I was unsuccessful in obtaining employment in the SF Bay area. After six months of applying to every RN job (hospital, LTC facility, nursing home, per diem, agency, etc.) I relocated to my home state and secured a position immediately in a perioperative training program. Best of luck to you!
