Where It Will Take You

Students who fulfill the requirements to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) can then take the national RDN credentialing examination. In many states, RDNs will need a license or certification to practice. In the state of Ohio, with the RDN credential, a background check and payment of a fee is the requirement for a practitioner to receive his or her license to practice.

RDNs work in a variety of settings including hospitals, long-term care facilities, schools, supermarkets, with athletes, private practice settings, eating disorder centers, in academia, research, health departments, business corporations, health clubs, and many other areas.
