Becoming a medical transcriptionist is part of the long-range goals I have set for myself. In the spring of next year, I will be attending college in hopes of becoming a Registered Nurse. I have attempted this at two different times in my adult life. Becoming a medical transcriptionist would help offset some costs associated with going to school full time and help with monthly bills at home which still come regardless of whether you are working or going to school. It would also put me in a place to start learning more medical terms and how and where to use them in a more natural way. I have a friend who has done this for years and I see the benefits and advantages she has by working from her home. She can still get her home chores done and make a living.
Being able to work from home with a human transcription service enables her to still do what she loves best, be a mom. My aim is not exactly the same but what it would give in addition to what I do part time now would enable my family to have a much better lifestyle as we have come a long way from where we have been the past four years. We are from Florida where I was a licensed Realtor. The Real Estate market in Florida has been one of the hardest hit, and with my husband also losing his income abilities as an aluminum contractor we found ourselves in a very bad situation. We lost our home, our nice vehicle, and much of our belongings.
Today while doing some research on the subject, I came across the "professional subtitlers" company. Within two years I hope to working as a Registered Nurse and doing medical transcriptionist jobs in my extra time, therefore, earning a nice living enabling my family to have our own home. We have a two-year plan within our family to have a new home once again as we lost our home through these serious economic times. We know our future is bright; we are geared at the outlook of our future and what it has in store for us. By learning new career resources we are hoping as a family to finally once and for all have something that no one can take away from us, the stability of a steady income and career that will always be needed. The medical field is where I have always wanted to be, it has just taken me years to get here. Convenience played a big role in my past, Real Estate just fell into my lap, and it was good to me while it lasted, but has no residual. I want residual, I want stability, I want to practice and be happy with what I have always wanted to do, be a part of the medical community.
