Which program did you take?
Medical Transcription/Healthcare Documentation
Tell Us About Yourself!
I am a 36 year old mother of two girls. One of my biggest regrets with my oldest was that I never got to see her very much due to my work schedule. She was in daycare/school all day, I would pick her up and then drop her off at my mom’s before dinner to go to work. I needed to find a something that offered more flexibility with a possible stay at home option so I could actually spend time with my daughter. That’s when I found CanScribe. I immediately enrolled in the Medical Transcription course and was off to the races! Unfortunately, due to the pandemic there was not a lot of work available, however I ended up securing a medical transcription job 10 months later that allowed me to work from home and make my own hours. It was then that I found out I was pregnant with my second daughter and I was so relieved that I would be able to be home with her.
Your CanScribe Experience
Tell us about your experience with CanScribe Career College.
CanScribe was incredibly supportive before, during and after my enrollment with their program. They were positive with their feedback for my reports and always available to answer any questions I had.
What originally made you look into one of our programs?
The ability to have a flexible work schedule and to perhaps work from home as well.
What made CanScribe stand out from other options?
CanScribe was an accredited college and I was therefore able to get student loans to be able to take the program. They also had incredible feedback from their graduates.
How has the decision to go back to school changed your life?
The decision to go back to school has allowed me to set my own schedule, which allows me to spend time with my family on my own terms. My stress level is near zero with my new MT job.
Was is it important to you to work/study from home? Why?
Yes, absolutely. First, to be able to study from home was important because I still needed to work and second, the pandemic had just began so everything had shut down and studying from home was the only option afforded to people.
How did your program set you up for a career in the industry?
Employers look at CanScribe graduates like they’re the golden egg. If you have CanScribe on your resume, you are almost guaranteed a job anywhere you apply.
Goals, Vision, and Future
What is your biggest motivation to succeed?
The ability to be flexible in my work schedule and support my family’s needs.
Would you recommend this course to people you know? Why?
Absolutely! I have shared my story with many other mothers who share the same regrets as I do, spending time away from their family at work and adhering to a strict 9-5 work schedule which isn’t conducive to the randomness of family life.
What advice would you give to new students?
Listen to that report again for start to finish!!! It took me 10 times sometimes before a word or sentence would make sense in my head. The reports in the course are harder than reports in real life. Do not give up!
Is there anything else you’d like to share?
I started with Interior Health in November of 2021 doing psychiatric medical transcription from home and it is my absolute favourite! I look forward to sitting down and listening to my favourite doctors every day. My team that I work with is also amazing.
