How do you become a Nutritionist?
More Answers From Nutritionist Degree Graduates
Host Question: How do you become a nutritionist? Is there prerequisites that exist to call yourself that, degrees or certifications required, and if so is what’s the length of that process.
Guest Answer: To become a nutritionist, it really depends on where you live. A lot of states don’t require anything if it’s not like a regulated term, so you might just be somebody that’s like, hey, I really am interested in food, I wanna write a food blog, or I wanna talk to people about wellness and nutrition, and they can say, hey, I’m a nutritionist, and there isn’t really any regulation that goes along with that. But other states would require you to have some kind of education. It just depends on the regulation of the term in that state. So for example, someone could have a bachelor’s of science degree in nutrition but not go on to become a registered dietitian, and they could call themselves a nutritionist in a lot of states do.
Guest Answer: You become a nutritionist is going to depend on the state you live in based on if that state requires any sort of licensure or any sort of standardized path. So across the board, across the country, there’s no real regulator pathway of education or experience to call yourself a nutritionist.
Guest Answer: Trishanists is a pretty broad term and can encompass a whole group of individuals, whether they’re just taking a six or nine month course online, they might have an associate’s degree or even a bachelor’s degree or even a PhD in nutrition and could be a nutritionist by definition.
Guest Answer: Some of those are accredited programs and some aren’t as accredited. It really is a broad brush of who could become a nutritionist and use that title in terms of academic background and training.
