Have you looked into government positions? While I would DEARLY want "THAT" job, I took a position with the state of Texas because it has great benefits and pays the bills. The bonus part? I am gaining experience. It may not be the experience I WANT, it is something. I am getting patient contact, honing my assessment skills, and building my critical thinking and communication skills. And learning VERY quickly about medications used in psych, along with getting more and more comfortable with insulin and educating about diabetes to people with a diminished capacity to learn...unless I suddenly decide I love my job and stay with it, it should eventually lead to an acute care position, which will allow me to get the experience I need to go for my advanced practitioner degree and become a great FNP who has EXCELLENT experience dealing with difficult, non-complaint patients.
To make my long story short: Apply for anything and everything, and take what you can get. (And that old saying seems to be true: Once you have a job, you'll suddenly start finding others. I turned down one position, and was told by a DON on a pediatric unit that she wants to hire me. I am just waiting on HR to get back to me on a salary number. )
Good luck!!!! (Oh! And for the record, I graduated from a school in Arizona in mid-August, moved to Texas, passed the NCLEX in October, and managed to find SOMETHING in a city that seems to be FLOODED with new grads.)
