Default How do you transition from LTC to the hospital?

I am a relatively new nurse. i live about 60 miles north west of Manhattan in Orange County, NY. I have been working as an RN in a LTC facility for a little over a year (this is my first nursing job). Well, long story short I resigned from position to work for another facility that was really terrible (i felt my license was at risk) and now i find myself w/ out a job and i can't seem to find another. i have applied at ever hospital in my area and further (I want out of LTC) and i keep getting the same answer: "thank you for your interest but we are interviewing more experianced candidates." So my question is: How do i get hospital experiance if a hospital wont hire me without experiance? I am not applying for specialties either. I feel soooo frustrated. This is the worst time of my life. I thought becoming a nurse would pretty much guarentee a job any where.
