    I've done some prelim searches on that myself. The best luck I had was putting in an RN + case management search on some job search engines, and there were a few agencies and companies that said you would have a home based office. Blue Cross occasionally does this, I'm told. No opportunities in my area, but you might do a 'net seach and see. The only ones I found I would've had to move to Ohio or Minnesota or some place like that. I couldn't see moving hundreds of miles just to work from home. LOL

    I am working from home as a medical transcriptionist. I "fell" into the job buy I have found it VERY easy and actually the pay is better than when I was a nurse.

    I know that most of the time you need some extra training. There are some RN-MT programs. I didn't take one but am also transcribing a specialty that I did as an RN.

    The most important part is the medical terminology, typing skills, and a VERY good sense proper grammar.

    I am interested in part-time work from home in the evenings, transcription would be great, also phone triage. Any suggestions about how I might look for this type of work.

    The training is a certificate program you can do from home, BUT it doesn't guarantee you a work-from-home position upon completion. Many places require you to have in-house transcription experience before they will accept you to work from home. It's just whether you are lucky enough to land the job you want.

    You can also market your self to a transcription service, or physicians office- then you can charge top dollar for your services. Nurses do not need to be an employee to work as RNs, unliker LPN/LVNs. LNCs market themselves to attorneys- it is hard, as a nurse to market yourself- we have no experience in that stuff. But you have very marketable services to a large segment of the health care industry. Its just that the hospitals would prefer to have you believe that you are worthless, and your professional services are not worth more than HS dropout wages. You can also market youself to insurance companies and the like. Then you are your own boss, and can work from home. You can then do like I do, and use your house as a tax writeoff. The home office deductions. I do legal consulting, and I make out MUCH BETTER ON TAXES because I use my house and car for business. Use your imagination.

    If you are interested in medical transcription check out this website michele @medical-transcriptoin-at-home.com

    Also, Mediquest in an online MT company which hires new MT's. I you don't have to take a class to work for them. There are some other good reference sites, but I'll have to reference them myself.

    I contract with a company, CHCS, in Florida and do in-home assessments prn. If they have an assessment in my local area, they call me to see if I'm available. I wish I could find another company such as this one. They contract with insurance companies. Any other advice someonen might have?

    I have been looking into doing this. I stay at home with my daughter and this seems to be the way to go to help pay the bills. Any advice on how to get started?
    Thanks!

    I've done hours and hours of research on work-from-home employment opportunities. I just knew there had to be something out there. So, here's some findings: CHCS in Florida and LifePlans in MA - contract with these agencies and do in-home assessments for insurance companies. Also, Unival does facility credentialing - just contracted with them and completed telephonic training. Long Term Care Alliance does risk management and provides flexible work-from home employment. Nurse's CareLink is another agency which does nursing assessments. CareScout is another agency which you may find interesting.

    It takes hours to finally find some of these great opportunties. I've been doing assessments routinely this past week and it is great to have a flexible work-from-home schedule.

    If anyone has any other names of places to contract with, I'd sure like to know. Otherwise, I'll keep searching - you do the same. Maybe we'll find some more treasures. Keep smilin'..... Hope to hear from someone soon.
