    Re: How to become a professional nutritionist?


    Hi!
    Hello!
    If you're into sports, exercise and healthy living, let's be honest, it sounds like a cool job to have. However, it does seem that many people are under the impression that training to be a good nutritionist can be done through a few short courses, and any nutritionist worth their weight will tell you that there's a lot more to it than that! Of course, some short courses are available, but these will do little more than expand your own knowledge base and you'll acquire very little in the way of good solid information, and, despite what the course instructors will have you believe, you will be no where near competent enough to hand out professional nutrition advice.

    There are different types of nutrition professionals; let's look at the definitions:
    Nutritionist:>
    This is an unprotected term. Anyone can read a few books or sit on a few short courses and then go and sell their service as a 'nutritionist' with no formal qualifications or registration.

    Dietitian (also Dietician):>
    To call yourself a dietitian you have to be registered with the Health Professions Council and you will be a State Registered Dieitian (SRD) .
    Nutrition & dietetics is typically a 4 year undergraduate degree course, which includes some catering and practical dietetic placements at hospitals where you get experience hands on. Following graduation most graduates will go onto work for the Health Service, though some will branch into the private sector and work in industry or freelance.


    Registered Nutritionist:>
    Registered Nutritionists are full members of The Nutrition Society (see www.nutritionsociety.org). In order to be a member of The Nutrition Society you need a few years post graduation experience working in the nutrition field and references to prove this.

    Registered Public Health Nutritionist:>
    Like Registered Nutritionists, Registered Public Health Nutritionists are full members of The Nutrition Society. Public Health Nutrition is the application of the science of nutrition for the benefit of the population as a whole, or sub-sections of the population.

    Nutritional Therapist:>
    Nutritional Therapy (NT) could be defined as dealing with the preventative and curative aspects of nutrition, and looks at nutrition as a means of restoring clients to optimum health.

    Nutrition Consultant:>
    The term 'nutrition consultant' is unregulated, but is often used to denote professionalism and to separate the professional from the term 'nutritionist' as, within professional circles, 'nutritionist' is often seen to be less professional and inferior.

    Studying Nutrition with a View to a Profession:>>
    In order to qualify as a dietitian or as a Registered Nutritionist, you will need to have an undergraduate or post graduate degree in nutrition and/or dietetics. This route takes 4-5 years as a full time student, and is not very practical for many people, especially those in their 20s or older wishing to study nutrition with a view to giving out advice.
