Default Hospital interpreting- USCE?

I've asked this before, but new people register and I can get more insight on this issue. I work for a hospital as an interpreter. In my opinion wayyyy more than the exposure I had as an observer- which I did in 2013. I graduated in 2010 and have been doing interpreting while preparing and taking the exams. Had a few financial issues which forced me to work. Step scores are average in the 230s.

How hard will it be to secure interviews. Only 1m observership; 6 month hospital interpreting; 7 years+ medical interpreting (over the phone).

NY state is not easy to obtain externship or shadow positions....except for maybe NYC. So, I'm stuck.

Help. Thanks.
