Medical Transcription. The good, bad, and the ugly?
I'm presently an RN and want to make a little money from home. I plan to go through one of those online schools but with so many, it's hard to know where to plonk my money down. I've heard that Andrews and MedTech are good but they're also very pricey. Just wondering what others' experiences have been and if they can recommend a good school and a good employer to earn a decent wage. And again, I'm not looking to earn big money, just something to do on the side that will put my nursing degree to good use when I'm not at the bedside. I don't want to leave my house, as I have a little one at home. Thanks.

There are high quality insurance companies who need to have the applicant interviewed and the only clinical work is urine sample. I guess that is to screen for drugs? But, you seem to have... More
