Dietitian Working Conditions

Dietitians and nutritionists held about 67,400 jobs in 2012. Physical working conditions for dietitians and nutritionists are generally good, as just under one-third worked in hospitals in 2012, with 13% working in government, 9% in nursing and residential care facilities, 7% in health practitioner offices and 7% in outpatient care centers.

About 11 percent of dietitians and nutritionists were self-employed in 2012. Self-employed dietitians and nutritionists work as consultants who provide advice to individual clients, or they work for healthcare establishments on a contract basis.

Most dietitians and nutritionists worked full time in 2012, although about 1 out of 5 worked part time. Self-employed dietitians have more flexibility in setting their schedules. They may work evenings and weekends so that they can meet with clients
