Ann’s Answer

It is interesting to receive 2 answers from individuals who are not in the field.
There are surveys that are taken by dietitians every few years to know what pay scale can be expected depending on where you live.
In my position working for a large HMO, we are unionized. In California, the pay is higher than most states. Since I have many years of experience and practice at the top of my profession (ie I have several additional credentials along with being a registered dietitian), I make over $120k yearly.

Hi,


Healthy living is the way to go in coming years, it has become need of the time.


Average Salary and Wage for Nutritionists. According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, as of May 2013, the average annual salary for nutritionists was $56,300. On the other hand, non-salaried nutritionists earned an average hourly wage of $27.07 in that same year.


However, there is a link that talks about pays in details, and might help you understand the facts -

All the best!

Hi Meghan,

There is a variety of opportunities as a nutritionist. The pay scale will depend on where you live and what specialty you decide to pursue.
In MN, it appears the range is between 65k-70k. I would recommend to research the difference between a nutritionist vs a Dietitian. Dietitians tend to make more money than a Nutritionist as there is additional education required for credentials. This also open doors for more opportunities since some specialties require a more extensive training and credentials.

If you are interested in pursuing the nutrition realm, I would recommend find what concentration or specialty interest you. What are you passionate about and seek to talk to those to gain more insight or volunteer to get more experience. This will assist you in making the decision on what path you will take for your future.
Best wishes!
