    You know we get this question so many times on this Forum in one form or another. I think your post is probably the best worded as it is to the point. Many people think that because they have a degree or certification in informatics that they are automatically qualified to practice in this specialty.
    ikarus put it so well when he wrote that class work is not real world practice or experience (no amount of reading is going to give that to you and you dont get that from a text book) and that is what hiring managers are looking for.
    You need to look for entry level jobs and go from their to build your skills and experience in this field.......just like you did when you first graduated from nursing school.
    I'd suggest joining ANIA and why dont you also reach out to an experienced informaticist and ask to establish a mentoring relationship.
    Good Luck
