Becoming an RD

To become a Registered Dietitian, a bachelor’s degree, including coursework that meets certain requirements, is necessary.  Many people choose a major in Human Nutrition or Dietetics to meet this requirement.  Then, an approved internship must be completed.  Information on approved programs can be found at eatright.org, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ web page.  Once the internship has been completed, an RD candidate must pass the registration exam.  Once the candidate has passed, he or she is an RD!  For more information on the RD process, visit eatright.org.  For questions or information on my RD journey, e-mail me at healthybookworm@gmail.com.
