Nutritionist School in Utah


Utah Nutrition Schools

Once a particular path is chosen, schools will assist in registering graduates with CDR credentials, competency exams, and an internship or professional education program. Clinical experience will provide complete training with supervision.

The most commonly used titles are “RD” (Registered Dietician) and “DTR” (Dietetic Technician Registered) which can be interchangeable with “nutritionist. “DTR” refers to those with an AA degree or other eligible program, and “RD” is used at the bachelors and graduate level. High school classes in biology, health and chemistry are quite helpful (these classes are available on-line from a number of accredited schools). Health and all facets of food/nutrition will obviously be a large part of the core classes taken while working toward a bachelor’s degree.  Biology Principles or AP Biology is an admission requirement at some institutions. Other courses that lead to nutrition certification in UT will involve science as it relates to food as well as social science and communication.

Courses will teach important skills in assessment and dietary screening for teens, children and adults. Students will learn to develop varied menus, modify food choices and create rehabilitation plans. Nutritionists working in clinical settings will learn to document all assigned exercises with patients and supervisors.

Through campus based and online programs, aspiring nutritionists in Salt Lake City, West Valley, Provo and West Jordon, Utah may be able to prepare themselves for the possibility of employment in some of the largest hospitals and healthcare facilities in the state including the Intermountain Medical Center, Saint Mark's Hospital, University of Utah Health Care and Utah Valley Regional Medical Center.

Many Utah employers are so eager to keep trained nutritionists that they ask for a one-year commitment up front – talk about job security!
