New grad with no experience:(

  1. Hey all!
    I graduated from an Associate degree program in May 2011 and passed the NCLEX in the summer. While I would love getting a hospital job, I would seriously take anything to get the experience I need to eventually land my dream job. There's one problem: hospitals, nursing homes, clinics etc don't like hiring those with no experience (which is me). I am currently working as a medical assistant in a clinic. At least I will have some sort of experience (although not as an RN) to put on my resume.
    My question- how can I make my cover letter and resume sound good when I have no nursing experience? I have worked in the past but nothing nursing related.
