Nutritionist and Dietitian Programs in New York

The New York Labor Market Career Zone reported that there were roughly 4,660 Registered Dietitians (RD) working in the State of New York in 2006. Based on the total number of annual openings and its growth rate, the employment prospects for this occupation are described as “favorable.” The estimated growth for New York’s employment of Registered Dieticians is 4,910 employed by the year 2016. This represents an increase of 81 jobs each year, and a total of 250 job openings in the next nine years.

Employment predictions according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of registered dietitians, nutritionists, and other dietician related degrees, is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through the year 2015 because of increased emphasis on disease prevention, a growing and aging population and public interest in nutrition. Employment in hospitals is expected to show little change because of anticipated slow growth and patients’ reduced lengths of hospital stay and preventative education. Faster growth is anticipated in nursing homes due to the baby boomer generation, residential care facilities and physicians clinics. ADA's, American Dietetic Association, survey of members shows RD’s work in these settings nationwide:
