Acute Care 2 years after graduation?

  1. How possible do you think it would be to get a job in a hospital after 2 years of working in community based organization (outpatient clinic and respite care)?

    Some places have told me that I don't qualify for new grad programs anymore since I have more than 6 months experience as a nurse but to get a job as a regular staff nurse, I need to have a year of acute care experience!

    Also, it seems like I have sent out my resume everywhere with no avail.

    Anybody else been in this situation? Do i really need to take a refresher course after being away from acute care for only two years??!
