More Answers From Nutritionist Degree Graduates
Host Question: How do you become a renal nutrition specialist and what does that mean?
Guest Answer: If you wanted to be a renal dietitian, again, you would go through the same process to be a regular registered dietitian, your stirs, your internship, your national exam, and then once you were working in the field, you would want to work with a renal dietitian. So this is someone who is working with patients with kidney disease, whether they’re on dialysis, if they’re pre dialysis.
Guest Answer: And for a lot of those board certification titles, you would need about two thousand hours of supervised training, work with dietician in that field before you could then test and pass an an exam for that. And any kind of certification add to your title, whether it’s renal, whether it’s oncology with cancer patients, pediatrics, sports nutrition, those are all found through the commission of dietetic registration, and whatever their requirements are at the present time would be listed on there of how you could go through process of getting that additional certification entitled to your name.
Guest Answer: Arina nutrition specialist is going to be a dietician that works specifically with individuals with end stage renal disease. I believe these are in a hemodialysis center. So in order to become certified in renal nutrition, you’ll have to show a certain amount of hours working with this population, and then can sit for an exam. And if you pass the exam, you can say you are certified in renal nutrition.
Guest Answer: These exams too do require certification every so often, every few years, and so you’ll have to continue taking that exam if you wanna stay certified.
Guest Answer: Make them a pediatric dietitian, you still have to get your bachelor’s degree. You still have to do your internship and get your r d. But during your internship, there’s actually a lot of programs now that when you’re looking at internships to apply to, a lot of them will have a pediatric focus. So I would suggest going into that or know, when you’re in your internship, there are probably opportunities where you can request more rotations in that area and just really getting your feet wet to decide if that’s what you wanna do after you have your r d, you know, apply to those pediatric jobs like within the hospital or schools or the community that you’re interested in.
