Job Description for Dietician or Nutritionist
Dieticians generally work in a clinical or hospital setting or nursing home. Patients may walk in for services, and in some cases dieticians will visit patients at their bedsides. Dieticians help shape their clients' diets to help them maintain or regain their health and proper nutrition, and may also create meal plans for clients to follow. It is necessary to be familiar with a wide range of dietary restrictions and types of foods, as well as diseases and limitations, in order to assign appropriate food plans.Read More...
There are both part-time and full-time positions for dieticians. Some may work with clients who have difficulty communicating, as well as their families. They should not only assign meal plans, but also educate clients and their families regarding how to maintain a healthy diet and why certain foods should or shouldn't be consumed. Dieticians also work with the medical providers of patients (with the patients' consent) in order to better understand their needs. It is important to be able to work well with a wide variety of people and communicate in a patient and effective manner at all times.
A bachelor’s or master’s degree in dietetics or a related field is generally required for this position, after which testing is also required to become registered. (Copyright 2019 PayScale.com)
