I've pondered for a long time what it is that I would like to go to school for. I have a passion for nutrition, food and what it does to our bodies. I want to end up doing something that I know I will be happy doing for the rest of my life. I'm interested to hear from other dietitians and the experiences they went through to get to where they are. How long did it realistically take for you to bui

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

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'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

Hello all! I cant believe this site exists and wish I had found it sooner! I consider myself quite passionate about eating right and believe it plays a huge role in preventing many illnesses. That being said, I would love to help educate people and motivate them to eat better. Thus, dietetics has always been a career path I wanted pursue. However my parents and close friends urged me into nursing

I have had the hardest time finding a job in this field ever since I finished my internship in 2011. I worked for WIC for 3 years and then two years as a part time bariatric dietitian. I would really like to get into a full time clinical position at a bigger hospital. I have applied to several places and only had two interviews for prn positions of which I was turned down for both. I'm not ready

Hello, everyone. I've recently come across a few opportunities to consult to groups homes for individuals with disabilities. I think Medicaid reimburses for this? Any one familiar with this type of nutrition service and what the typical reimbursement rates are and/or the typical consultant fee?

Thanks!

Hi all, currently "over" my hospital based outpatient job and I'm trying to break into consulting in local MD offices and billing "incident to care".

I have some colleagues doing this in a small town about 2 hours from where I am, but no one in my town has done this, so getting it started has been more of a challenge than I anticipated.

Does anyone have experience billing for services "

So, due to medical issues I find myself unable to work a usual 40 hr/week job, I am barely able to do per diem. I have experience in LTC, acute care and WIC totaling about 10 years. Does anyone know of any companies or positions or job titles that I should be searching for? I am open to anything nutrition or clinical related but don't even know where to start? Has anyone else been through this wh

I work in california at a well regarded hospital, and it drives me crazy to see all of the overweight people in healthcare! Our patients must think we are mad. Why is it that so many healthcare providers are out of shape and in horrible states of health? I may be biased because I specialize in nutrition, but it drives me crazy!

The other day I met a dietician who was borderline obese. How doe

Hey everyone,

I am curious to know what exactly happens in care conference, as well as expectations that other members of the healthcare team have for dietitians during meetings. What exactly are we supposed to say? I'm a new RD and only sat in a lot happened. Thanks

Hello everyone. I'm a Dietetic Intern who's in the final two months of my internship. I'm very excited to start my career. I enjoy the dietetics field and I am very passionate about nutrition, weight loss, diabetes management, and overall health and wellness. I can't imagine working in any other profession. Since a lot of you have been practicing for awhile, I would like to get some advice/feedba

I am in the process of applying for my first job as an RD and am wondering if any managers/current RDs have tips for a good resume.

The first page of my resume includes my experiences as a dietetic intern (broken down into clinical, food service and community). The second page includes my prior work experience, community service and awards/scholarships. Should I still include community servic

Does anyone have any experience working for Coram/CVS as a home health/nutrition support dietitian? Or experience working for a similar company?

I am wondering what percentage of the position is sales/marketing versus managing nutrition support. Did you feel like this position helped you improve your nutrition support skills?

Do they pay well and have good benefits? Interested in the pr
