So I guess it's time that I post on here that I was accepted into the Nicholls Dietetic Internship. I'm incredibly excited to finally start this journey to finishing my education to become a Registered Dietitian. This has been a dream of mine and it's finally happening!
I often hear people refer to me as a nutritionist and a dietitian - but did you know there is a difference? While I have my bachelors in dietetics, I'm not a registered dietitian, YET! But once I complete my internship and pass the National Registration Exam for Dietitians, I will be an RD!
