“I am excited about participating in the new dietetics major. It provides great opportunities for those wanting to pursue a career in nutrition and helping others. I truly appreciate the involvement that comes along with the Dietetics program because all of these experiences will certainly help prepare me for getting a job in the future.”

According to ADA’s 2007 Dietetics Compensation and Benefits survey, half of all registered dietitians in the US who have been working in the field for five years or less earn between $42,000 and $55,000 per year. Salaries increase with years of experience. Many registered dietitians, particularly those in management, business and consulting, earn incomes above $86,000.
