Hospital nursing or other areas

Im starting to feel bad about not landing a hospital position. Has anyone ever landed a good paying job with no hospital experience ? I want to become an FNP in the future but from the looks of with no hospital experience it will be hard. I’ve only been a nurse for a year I have experience in subacute/longterm care and a rehabilitation hospital. However I want exposure to things like IV drips etc. I also believe hospital provide continuous education to move up the clinical ladder. My current employer does not offer any.

It probably depends on the nursing numbers in your area. Where I live (Tennessee and Kentucky) we're so chronically short that applicants have their pick as long as your background check is clear.
