Nicole’s Answer

There are a few paths to becoming a Registered Dietitian.

One path, can be earning a Bachelor's degree (4 years) in the area of Nutrition or Dietetics with the required internships before taking the Registration Examination for Dietitians.

If you have already completed a Bachelor's degree, the other path can be through the completion of a Masters level Coordinated program in Nutrition and Dietetics (2 to 3 years) with required internships before taking the Registration Examination for Dietitians.

The length of time that it takes to pass the exam is all up to you.

Nicole recommends the following next steps:

Reach out to your local university that offers a Bachelor's Degree in Nutrition and speak to the program advisor about your interest in the program
Call the nutrition department at your local hospital and ask to meet with the Registered Dietitian to learn about what they do

Dr. Frank’s Answer

In becoming a registered dietitian, a Bachelor's degree in Nutrition, Dietetics, or food science is required. Typically, Bachelor's degrees require four years to complete. For a registered dietitian, the degree programs do require an internship.

In addition, you have to register with the state you live in to have license to practice and maintain through continuous CE courses and approved seminars.
