It was 10 years ago when I accidentally discovered the online medical transcription field.  I was intrigued and knew that I would absolutely love the work, and working from home, not to mention being able to achieve an accredited course online from home.  I have to say that the first school I attended online, disappeared after my first 3 months.  I lost money.  I was upset and scared to try again.  However, I soon discovered CanScribe and was able to determine that it was an actual school, with actual instructors and that it had been around for a while, so I was reassured that it would not disappear off the internet.  I enrolled.  I thought it was going to be an easy course.  I love this subject, therefore, this should be a breeze.  I was wrong.  I soon found out that I in fact did not spell quite as well as I thought, and I had a lot to learn about punctuation and grammar.  There were times throughout the course that I was so frustrated with the material and the dictations that I was ready to give up.  The instructors were there to help and support me through those times and I went on to graduate with honors.  I was employed within 2 weeks of completing the course.  Over the last 10 years, I have been working with Nuance on different accounts.  Most recently, in the last 2 years, I’ve also started working with CanScribe.  To come full circle and be able to help students just as I was helped, is an amazing feeling.  I’m so glad that I pushed through the tough times.  Without CanScribe, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
