Clinical Dietician Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Clinical Dietician in Norman:
"Nobody will respect you."
Nutrition information (and misinformation) is ubiquitous and everyone thinks they know the right answers better than you do-- even if they have never had a nutrition course (doctors are included here). Unfortunately, nutrition is also very hard to research and new and conflicting information is available seemingly every day-- we do sometimes find that what was believed to be true 5 years ago is no longer the case. As an RD you will have to fight for any respect at all and work really hard to stay on top of the new research (and pseudoscience) to remain relevant. I wish I had put my nutrition knowledge toward work as an RN or other professional whose pay would not stagnate through the years (I make less now than I did 10 years ago).
