Nutritionist and Dietitian Programs in Nevada

Nutrition and dietitian programs in Nevada offer students an opportunity to combine two popular career paths: Culinary-interested individuals may love working with food, while the medically minded will likely enjoy the health science aspects of the field. Learn more about what it takes to enter this attractive discipline by using the links at right to explore helpful information about Nevada nutritionist and dietitian schools. Read on to learn more about how to become a nutritionist in Nevada and the state's climate for dietitians and nutritionists.

Campus-Based vs. Online Nutritionist Education in Nevada

Both online and campus-based nutrition and dietitian programs in Nevada should give students the skills and knowledge needed to enter the field. Nutritionist schools in Nevada generally require students to take subject-specific classes, including nutrition, physiology, dietetics and anatomy. Other courses in topics such as management and communication may also be required. Prerequisite courses for both campus-based and online programs may include science and mathematics, along with English and business.

Students can choose to study nutrition and dietetics on-campus at traditional colleges and universities or can opt for an entirely online educational path. While both courses of study have advantages, online education offers students a unique opportunity due to its flexibility. Online programs may appeal to career-oriented students, as classwork can be tailored to fit a working person's schedule. Additionally, an online nutrition or dietetics program can be more accessible than its brick-and-mortar counterparts, as students with family obligations can take advantage of online flexibility to work toward their degree when time allows.

Nevada Nutritionist Salary and Employment Outlook

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported there were 260 dietitians and nutritionists employed in Nevada in May 2012, with a statewide mean annual wage reaching $71,840 (BLS.gov/oes, 2013).

Nutritionist Salary by Nevada City
2012 Mean Annual Wage
Las Vegas-Paradise
$78,810
Reno-Sparks
$59,220

The above table is based on information available from the BLS (BLS.gov/oes, 2013).

Additionally, the BLS projects employment of nutritionists and dietitians nationwide to grow faster than the average for other careers, up to 20 percent between 2010 and 2020 (BLS.gov/ooh, 2012). This growth in employment will likely stem from an increased interest in treatments and preventative medicine for illnesses related to the country's obesity epidemic, including heart disease and diabetes. Nursing homes, personal care services, local governments, outpatient care centers and hospitals will likely create most of the new opportunities for graduates of Nevada nutritionist and dietitian schools.

Nevada Nutritionist and Registered Dietitian Requirements

The Nevada Dietetic Association, a regional group of nutrition experts and a division of the national Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, currently requires that registered dietitians and dietetic technicians working in the state pass a series of exams. Required exams include the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) examination and the Nevada Dietetic Association state exam.

The CDR, the credentialing agency for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, administers these tests for those who have completed the required degree, including graduates of nutritionist and dietitian programs in Nevada. More information, including specific education requirements, can be found at the Nevada Nutritionist Certification and Licensing page.

Dietitians and nutritionists are more than advocates for eating right: They are health science professionals and food lovers who want to encourage healthy habits and lifestyles through education and encouragement. Make a difference today by finding the Nevada nutritionist and dietitian school to fit your life, schedule and career goals.
