New RN, no chance at hospitals?

  1. Hi there, I am a new graduate RN, just got my license about a month ago. I'm applying to hospital jobs and so far have not heard back from ANY! I live in Massachusetts, so I'm applying to all big hospitals, smaller ones as well, community ones... I am also looking at the hospitals in RI, which is very close to me. All my friends that I graduated with and who have gotten jobs got it because they knew someone on a specific floor/unit. Is this really the only way of getting into a hospital??? I'm very disappointed and kind of depressed.
