Dietitian Jobs

Dietitian Job Overview

Dietitians are responsible for educating patients on what foods to eat for their medical conditions. They promote healthy living and try to prevent illness through diet changes and exercise programs. For instance, diabetics are often taught how to eat a low-carb diet that is high in protein and balanced with natural fruits and vegetables and a small amount of carbohydrates. This is to keep their blood sugar levels in control. There are many conditions like this where dietitian jobs help people live safer and healthier lives.

Some dietitians work at hospitals and consult patients on an as-needed basis, but some dietitians help patients manage their medical conditions on a monthly or even weekly basis. There is a science behind good nutrition, and many people need coaching to manage their meals, exercise routines, and general health. Dietitians are in the business of helping people eat better to feel better. They are needed in several healthcare capacities and may work closely with doctors and registered nurses.

Dietitian Job Education Requirements

At a minimum, dietitians need to complete a bachelor's degree with coursework in nutrition, exercise science and general health. A bachelor's degree is sufficient for starting a career as a dietitian, but people who seek a master's degree or beyond are preferred job candidates because of their increased range of knowledge. Most dietitians major in nutrition or a similar subject.

Dietitian Job Market

Like all healthcare jobs, dietitians have above average demand and job growth opportunities. They are needed in hospitals, clinics and several other healthcare settings. There is a need for dietitians in all cities, with more demand in higher population areas. Many dietitians travel to patients' homes or work with them over the phone to coach them on good health and eating habits.

The United States has often been criticized for the population's growing waistlines. Dietitians help people lose weight and minimize their healthcare risks associated with being overweight. Because so many people are struggling with their weight, dietitians don't have much of a problem finding employment. Other medical conditions requiring dietary assistance include premature babies and patients struggling with Crohn's disease.

Dietitian Job Salary Information

On average, dietitians make $25 per hour, with an excellent starting base out of college. However, dietitians can make much more depending on their education and where they work, with some nearing six-figure salaries. Dietitians enjoy a high salary and live healthy lives because of their education and background in nutrition and healthy living, making this job a winning combination of wealth and happiness.
