What’s maybe entry level expectations coming out of school, maybe just with that bachelor’s degree level and then higher if you get the RD You’ve worked ten years, what’s maybe the goal top end of the range that you’re striving to make in your career?
Guest Answer: It really depends on what you decide to do with your degree. Nutrition is awesome because you can have so many different opportunities whether you wanna work for a hospital or in the community or work for the government or school or for yourself, and that really kind of expands the salary range for it. I would say, in general, Today, you’re probably looking at fifty to ninety for most, like, clinical types of jobs, maybe food service jobs, of course, that’ll go up with more experience if you have a master’s degree, if you have your r d, and then just kind of what you end up doing with it is what determines the salary the most.
Guest Answer: Nutrition science really varies depending on where you’re working in country. So if you’re working in a rural area that maybe doesn’t have many hospitals or many, like, food production plants, there’s not gonna be as high of a demand for your career, so you’re not really going to get near that higher end of compensation. So maybe starting wise, maybe around like fifty five thousand, sixty thousand, even lower to forty thousand, if you’re in a very rural area, despite having a four year degree. And then sometimes even if having the master’s degree, it might just not ever really escalate from there.
Guest Answer: If you’re working in an area that has a lot of medical centers, and that has a lot of safe food production plants as well. You can definitely see more of the upward length of the salary, so more in the ninety thousand, one hundred and twenty thousand area Certainly too, if you decide to go into private practice, if we’re talking dietetics or nutrition counseling, that’s probably the most lucrative route to go. Assuming that you do have the influx of clients to support that. But when we’re talking about private practice, you definitely can, you know, charge whatever you wish and may more upwards of two hundred thousand if you’re able to generate that clientele.
Guest Answer: Take it in terms of gallery for a non RD, just a bachelor prepared nutritionist, it really can kind of run the gamut. Even as a dietitian, depending on what you’re working in. If you’re working in public health, unfortunately, you’re doing a lot of good There’s just not a lot of funds. If you’re in more private practice or you’re an independent or a freelance, individual or you’re working for a company with deep pockets, you can create a niche for yourself and do very well. I would say, as a dietitian, kind of entry in getting out there, probably sixty to seventy thousand a year would kind of be on the starting end of of what you should be. Hoping for.
