Some career advice for those of you looking for a job. If a position seems too good to be true, it usually is. Never accept stock in lieu of payment. More than likely you will get burned having worked for free with no payoff. Start ups are notorious for this scam. They offer you a great title as well as a large sum of stock and make it seem as though your money ship will come sailing right in. Th

I do not think I did too well on a project, and it was worth a LOT of my grade. I have a 79 in there, but I am worried that the project is going to bring down my grade a lot. I am studying hard for the final, but I do not know if that is enough for me to keep at least a C. If for some reason I get a D or F, what do I do? I know I will retake it, but I am worried that because of that bad grade, I

Here is my story. After posting in this forum and taking in the advice of many, I have finally decided to pursue my RD internship after 16 years working as a nutrition specialist at a local university. The program I'm doing is long distant and will consider all my prior community experience so, I only need clinical hours.

Problem is it is as hard as hell to get someone willing to take you in a

I am very sad because I found out that I did not get into a dietetic internship program. It came very unexpected because I have a good grade point average (3.5) and a lot of experience in the nutrition field as I worked as a nutrition program coordinator in an adult day care where I worked directly under the RD. So yes, I was shocked I did not get matched and I still do not know why. I only appli

Reason I'm asking is I rec'd high protein/high kcal diet for an underweight COPD'er with recent severe weight loss. I mentioned can use whey protein powder but suggested she try a liquid supplement instead because more palatable/easier to

If you have failed the RD exam you are not alone. If you failed a few times you are still not alone. My daughter used Inman Guides and studied and failed then added Visual Veggies and I added prayers to St Joseph of Cupertino, patron saint of exams. No matter your religion ask St Joseph for help. My daughter passed second attempt. Good luck and dont ever quit.

Here is my dilemma.

I recently moved from Texas to Arizona. I have some scholarship funds left in Texas, enough for 2 classes. Books I'd have to pay for. I have to take two classes for the scholarship and they may not transfer as core classes, but as electives.

I am not eligible for in-state tuition in Arizona (at any college) until July 2018. :|

I've started over in my career, in life. I mulled over becoming an RD for years. Literally years. After some major life issues I decided there is no time like the present. So I began working towards getting a degree.

By the time I graduate I'll be 51.

I'm feeling a bit discouraged about being "so old" and wondering if all this schooling it worth it. Will anyone hire me? Accept me

Hi, I work for a community clinic and most patients here have MediCal. I need to learn if/what/under what circumstances MediCal (Medicaid) would pay for MNT. Does any of the webinars specifically address this issue? I see one that deals with reimbursement from Medicare and private payers but I am interested in MediCal-Medicaid.
Thank you.

I am a contracted dietitian for an out patient rehab facility. They pay me an hourly rate to assess patients, provide education consults when needed, teach classes, individualize menus, etc. All very typical RD duties. However, as far as I know, they do NOT bill for any of the consults or classes. They simply absorb the cost of the dietitian and treat it as a "value add" service to their patients
