What's a Dietitian?
We are the nutrition experts. If you have a question or concern
related to a healthy lifestyle or a
special diet , we are the ones to ask.
Education wise, a Dietitian has a Bachelor's Degree from an accredited
college. At that point, you either have an internship, Approved Supervised
Practice or Master's Degree to qualify for the Registration Exam. After
passing the Exam, you are a Registered Dietitian! We then need continuing
education to maintain our Registration. This keeps us updated on current
knowledge, trends, etc. Some states have licensure for Dietitians. Be
aware that unlike a Dietitian, a nutritionist is not required to have a
Bachelor's Degree. Their expertise is very limited.
