Job Outlook

Students who complete the 120 credit hour B.S. degree in nutrition and dietetics, and obtain the registered dietitian (RD) credential are qualified to work in a variety of settings. Hospitals, wellness centers, clinics, food companies, health departments, health agencies, nursing homes, school districts, universities, and mental health centers all employ RDs. Many RDs have their own businesses as well. Program graduates who do not obtain the RD credential most often seek employment in the areas of food service management, nutrition education, community health, and medical sales. Program outcomes data are available upon request.
