How to get a job as a medical records clerk/patient registrar in a hospital?

I have applied for the position of medical records clerk/patient registrar to at least 10 different hospitals and 40+ applications for the past 8 months – without any response! I am a health information management student and have learned ICD-9-CM coding, HIPAA rules and regs, and I am proficient in registering new patients, analyzing medical records and patient/physician deficiency analysis. I have experience working as a pharmacy technician and cashier at a gas station. Do I have any chance of getting into a hospital?? I would also consider working at a nursing home or a mental hospital if there are any chances. (I haven’t found a single nursing home’s website with a working application form or email id!)
