If you have no reason that is anchoring you to where you live now, I would search for states that are in most need of nurses and start applying outside of your state. You need to get experience some how, and maybe moving out of state and living in somewhere remote for a year or two might get you the experience you need. There is A LOT to be learned at a rural hospital. I spent my first year as a nurse in a rural hospital and I learned SO MUCH. It may not be fancy and full of technology, but you will learn and that's going to be the way to get to where you want to be some day. If you are open to it, I would also consider finding employment outside of the hospital setting. Maybe you might like home health, school nursing, long term care, case management, a doctor's office or surgery center. Open your mind, and think outside the box. You CAN get a job, you just have to be open minded about experiences.
