Dietitians and Nutritionists
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment of dietitians and nutritionists will grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2022. 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.
