  • Hi Kim:)

    My name is Brigitte. I’m 23. I am looking into Dietetics! I love the fact of helping people through food and nutrition. I am wondering if you knew Registered Dietitians who work in the school system like with kids? Also do you know dietitians who work with Dermatologists? I am doing a lot of research and I am loving all your videos. They are very informative and fun to watch!:)

  • I love that you’re informing people about what RDs actually do. It’s exhausting to explain sometimes. I’m in school now. 2 more years to go!!

  • That’s so sad that your EN and PN rotation was so short! Mine was many weeks and I’m so thankful! It is interesting working with students and seeing how different each interns clinical experience can be!

  • Thanks for the informitive video!! I get pretty tired of hearing only opinons on feilds of study, so it’s refreshing to hear just some facts.

  • Hello! I also wen to FSU and got my BS in International Affairs. What would be the best route to go to become a Guy-tician? Go to a community college and do my sciences then apply for a masters or would that not be enough and I’d have to go do the full BS? Great video, thanks for the info!

  • Hi Kim! Thank you so much for posting this video. I’m starting my dietetic internship in 3 weeks. I’m looking forward to starting the next chapter in life for my career:)

  • Hi Kim! I am a dietetic student and I graduate in about a month. I do not have the money to pay for an internship yet, so I will be applying to those after working for almost a year. Watching your video made me feel so much better and not quite so nervous about how I will do in internship. All of the things you mentioned we had to do in Clinical Nutrition classes and Counseling in Dietetics classes at Kansas State University. I am told it is one of the tougher programs in the country, considering that there is an overall 50% match for internship, but at K-State 55% match. I will definitely be reviewing my note cards and assignments before heading out to internship. Another thing I really liked was that in Clinical Nutrition I we had to memorize a lot of medical terminology and were tested on it. Our professor is actually a clinical dietitian part-time at a hospital. She is amazing! Her classes are really tough though. I have stacks and stacks of note cards from them. Sometimes I wonder how in the world I will remember it all when I go to internship. By the way, I am a non-traditional student who is over 30 and going to school online. I really think a downfall of going to school online is that we miss out on all of the potential for networking with professors and with other students. Don’t get me wrong, it is great to be able to work it around the rest of my life, but it is very challenging.

  • Wow! U put so much work into this how helpful! I am a certified health coach looming for work. Not sure how to get started or what to do but I’m thinking of MUIH for their Masters program in Integrative Health. Anyone in the comments heard of this program? I’m looking for some Input to help my decision to enroll

  • She’s right about the need for diversity. Most jobs and conferences I attend, I’m the only male and most of the time the only African American. #GUY-a-titian

  • I’m so thankful to hear that I wasn’t the only one who didn’t get parenteral nutrition in their internship! I’ve been stressing about this. Where I work, the pharmacy handles everything, but I want to learn. Do you have any suggested materials for building up parenteral nutrition knowledge?

  • Hi Kim.
    Thank you for your videos. I have been following you since the beginning of my journey when I first started exploring the idea of becoming a RDN. I am currently a undergraduate at a Community College in California. I’m just getting started and I am already a bit intimidated by some of the YouTube videos lol. I’m confident I will do well though. ����I look forward to watching your videos whenever I feel discouraged or need some motivation. Thank you. Please keep making videos,

  • Hi Kim!!! I played this video for my DT students!!! I would have done something like this if YouTube were around when I was a “younger” RD. Keep up the great work!!!

  • Great Information thank you for this video. I have a friend that didn’t go the dietitian route but works in the food service equipment industry and gets paid REALLY good.

  • What part of Florida are you from? I’m in southern Florida looking into becoming a RDN and wondering how the market is. New subscriber by the way and very helpful videos!!

But I want to ask you something can I be a registered dietitian in USA? Can I apply those exams? Do I have to be American? Thank you and wish the best for you ����

  • Hey Kim Thanks for this vid!!! Very helpful for me as a RD in the making( I am currently in a coordinated program). Given the income of an RD, did you find it hard to make a living once you graduated?

  • Great Information thank you for this video. I have a friend that didn’t go the dietitian route but works in the food service equipment industry and gets paid REALLY good.

  • Love that you’re making videos for dietetic interns and students!! I’ve made a few so far, but I’ve just scratched the surface… I really think more dietetics students should be reaching out and helping one another, because man, sometimes the internship can be ROUGH! I’m finishing my dual grad school/internship program next week. So excited about it!!! woohoo! -Kat
