I am a RN and am also interested in working from home. I have not taken a medical transcription course, but have been interested in doing this anyway. There is a website (with forum) which Michele Miller has which is email@example.com
. She did not take a MT course and has been working at home for quite a while and staying mega busy. She does not advocate taking a transcripton course.
I went to my local college to actually register for their non-credit MT course and they asked me to teach it. I said...what? I ended up teaching it somehow. I learned a lot myself....but they are certified and not me. That was wild!
I was also looking in another forum on here and someone said there was a company in New York which hires new MT's and I don't think you need a class to work for them. Also Mediquest hires new MT's. They have you take a short test online and then proceed from there.
Hope this helps. Do you know of any other work-at-home nursing positions. I contract with a company CHCS out of Florida (I live in VA) and do in-home assessments for them. They are a third party adminstrator and contract with insurance companies. I really want to stay at home and do some type of nursing - which is non-traditional of course.
