Food and nutrition experts are in high demand in the healthcare industry. They’re needed to fill the registered dietitian jobs that handle meal planning, which is important to both patient health and hospital efficiency.
About 32% of registered dietitian jobs are based in hospitals, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Many other dietitians work in long-term care facilities, outpatient centers and physician offices. No matter where you work, registered dietitian jobs will have you assessing the needs of patients, developing meal plans for them, evaluating their progress and making new recommendations based on your findings.
There are a lot of different options out there because you can choose whether you would prefer working in an inpatient or outpatient setting. The former will have you creating individualized and group meal plans where you can monitor your patients every day. The latter will require you to teach patients how to implement your dietary recommendations at home. Both types of registered dietitian jobs are very rewarding and come with their own unique set of challenges.
