Any ATI dietitians here? Would like to know how the work is for a possible career move. I’m currently a clinical RD, but ATI keeps popping up around where I’m and just curious if it would be a good move for me (type of work, workload, management, stress level, benefits, pay, cold calls, etc).
I am speaking to a group of 300 high school students in Biology class tomorrow and my computer crashed. I prepared a 30 minute slide show on nutrition, the dietetics profession and some key metabolic pathways. Anyone have a 20-30 slide show I can edit? I am happy to share with the group so someone else could edit as needed!
I am transitioning from working at a nursing home for the past 3 years to starting my own business doing nutrition counseling out of a gym. I was contacted by an assisted living facility for consulting but I am not sure what to charge per hr. I know that I should charge more than I was making at the nursing home to cover self-employment taxes, health insurance, liability insurance, etc. but I'm n
I was told by one of my preceptors during my dietetic internship that for the first year out of school supervisors keep a close eye on new dietitians. I recently accepted a PRN dietitian at an acute care hospital with a census count of approximately 80 patients. I will be be working Saturdays alone in about 3 weeks and am concerned about being able to complete the number of assessments (15) and
Hi, I have a bachelor's in speech-language pathology and have been considering a career change to RD for quite some time now. However, I'd like to know what I'm getting myself into. I've never taken college chemistry classes. I always hear stories about people struggling in them. I took chemistry in high school and failed. I'm not that great at math (I had terrible teachers and lacked confidence)
I am currently working as a clinical RD. I have worked in community nutrition and acute and long term care and am interested in moving into/finding out more about RDs work in Regulatory Affairs. Any tips? Any RDs who work in Regulatory Affairs willing to share their pathways or informational interview. Really want to learn more about this. I've met 2 dietitians who work in this area in th
I would absolutely love to become a registered dietitian. I am 29 years old, have a bachelor's in business administration, am married, and have a 3 year old son. I understand that I need to complete a DPD to become internship eligible and then sit for boards. I have a couple of questions in regards to this. Is there a master's route to complete a DPD or to become board eligible? And what is every
I have only been an RDN since October of last year and am currently working as a clinical dietitian in an acute care hospital. During my undergrad I was not the slightest bit aware that dietitians don’t get compensated for much…(only for diabetes and renal disease). I am reading up on the Expanding Access to Diabetes Self-Management Training Act, Preventing Diabetes in Medicare Act,
Hi, I did my dietetic internship in 2014 and then immediately entered a PhD in community nutrition. I am thinking about getting a job as a hospital clinical dietitian for a while (I am a bit burned out from academia, and would like a regular 9-5 job for a while). However, I'm worried I won't be competitive for a clinical job as I have no clinical experience other than my internship (which was a
I'm a non-trad student, beginning to take dietetics classes through an online program. I have also been attending (in person) the university in my area, to complete the non-dietetics prerequisite courses (Biology, General and Organic Chemistry, etc.). While here, I have been doing research in microbiology, including a paid research program this summer. Today, my research professor talked to me ab
I have been working as a Consultant RD in LTC for the last 11 years but also have experience working for WIC and at a large hospital. I have slowly become "burned out" over the last several years and am looking for a career change. Wondering if anyone has any advice about entering a new career field when we have such specialized education/work experience?? I have thought about going back to colle
I have been offered a job in Seattle and I am about to negotiate salary. I am from te Midwest and I cannot find consistent information on pay. I really have no idea where to start in negotiating. Any thoughts on an average range? I am in clinical dietetics and ave been practicing for 5.5 years. Thanks!

I was wondering what the pros/cons are of being an outpatient dietitian at a hospital. Outpatient dietitians can I please get an idea of what your day is like and what you like/don't like about your job? Thanks!!!
Hi Everyone, I'm new here and have never reached out to any students that are in the program, so I thought id give it a try in hopes that I get my questions answered. Im currently enrolled in a community college and I'm not really that close to applying yet, but I wanted to still get information/guidance so that I'm aware.
The Dietetic Program says that its 18 months, but I wanted to know if
I've been working a full time outpatient job with benefits for the past 5 years. My job is essentially telephone and video based weight loss counseling. Most of the time I like what I do. However, I'm concerned that this limited area of knowledge will be an issue in the future if I want or need to get another job.
My commute is 45 minutes to an hour each way currently. I have a strong possi
Can someone tell me the pros/cons of being a lead RD for a dialysis company. Is the pay significant more? I believe the patient census is lower, but you have to attend more management meetings. Any advice is appreciated.
I have been an RD for almost 5 years and ultimately would love to further my education. I have been cautioned by several mentors that an MS in nutrition won't "mean" very much as far as career growth or monetarily. Some of my colleagues have suggested an MBA to make myself more well rounded but I'm not sure this is the right track for me. I have a strong interest in clinical nutrition and can't r
