How To Become An RD

Have you ever wondered how to become a Registered Dietitian? Everyone’s path is different and mine was a bit non-traditional but when I was making the decision to go back to school, it was helpful for me to read about the experiences of others to help prepare myself for what was ahead of me.

Since I blogged through all of my schooling, my dietetic internship and while studying to pass my exam, I thought it might be helpful to have all my school and internship links in one place in case you’re considered becoming an RD as well.
