Subject: Good News for Registered Dietitians/Nutritionists if You’re Prepared for It

Thank you for your continued support of Today's Dietitian. Below is information from one of our sponsors.

Ball State Online

First the good news. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment for registered dietitian nutritionists will grow 11 percent through 2028, much faster than average for all occupations.

More good news. Ball State Online offers a 100 percent online master of science in nutrition and dietetics, which means you can continue your career while taking one or two courses at a time.

That’s good news because beginning in 2024, the Commission on Dietetic Registration will require all new registered dietitians and registered dietitian nutritionists to have a graduate degree. In other words, there’ll be more competition in this expanding job market.

You’ll be glad to know that academic, study skills, and technology support come with your online degree, which requires 36 hours. Plus, you’ll learn from the same faculty who are committed to research and teaching and who teach the nutrition and dietetics courses on campus.

If you were waiting for the not-so-good news, you won’t hear it here. Feel free to contact me today.



Dr. Carol Friesen
Professor of Nutrition and Dietetics
Graduate Program Director

P.S. You can request the transfer of up to 9 graduate credits if you received a B or better in course work completed within the previous six years at a regionally accredited institution.
