Dietitians and Nutritionists

Employment of dietitians and nutritionists will grow much faster than the average for all careers through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. One contributing factor to continued growth is the public's increasing awareness of the importance of nutrition. Another is the fact that the average age of the population is increasing rapidly, which will bring about a growing need for nutritional counseling and planning in hospitals, residential care facilities, schools, prisons, community health programs, and home health care agencies. A third factor is the fact that more than 33 percent of U.S. adults are obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control, which is prompting growing demand for dietitians and nutritionists to help obese people live healthier lives.
