    Dietitian or Nurse

    Hello Fellow Miscers,

    I'm kind of stuck between the career choices of a dietitian and a nurse. I have a Bachelor's in Nutrition, so all I would need is to be accepted into a Registered Dietitian internship program (10 months long) which I have been rejected to two years in a row now. To obtain a Registered Nurse credential I would have to be accepted into a BSN program which can be only 15 months in the accelerated version for people with degrees.

    Nursing seems to be the much more lucrative choice and there is much more room for growth with advanced degrees. Dietitian seems to be more laid back, but the pay will reflect that. I think the only thing that is holding me back from nursing is the fact that I'm not sure if I'd be able to handle the actual job.

    Its kind of uncertain unless I was able to do a nurse's job for a few days which I wouldn't be able to do until I finished school. Kind of ****ed up how you have to spend 40k to try out a job that you might end up hating. Not sure if cleaning up a man who shat himself would make me gag or laugh. Never really dealt with any sort of situation like that. Starting to think I should just suck it up and think of the money I would get for the tasks.

    What does the misc recommend?

    Go with the Nursing degree. There are so many paths in nursing it is crazy. You'll make more money, better schedule, and more money.

    You can even get on in a private practice and have an office job.

    i actually just changed my major to nursing (BSN) from exercise science. I think you would have a better career financially and ability to expand into different areas in the field of nursing. What would you rather do is the question?

    Plenty of opportunities as a Nurse. Job stability, growth, several diff paths...you can work in ER, ICU, etc. You can also travel the world and earn bonuses. Steady hours, 12 hour days, 3x a week...anything after that is considered overtime, ballin'.

    I used to work as a Dietitian's assistant for one of the larger hospitals in So Cal, and they only needed around 5 dietitians for the entire hospital.

    Nursing is 80% paper work and 20% meds administration. Cleaning up **** and bathing is for CNA, not nurses.

    You could also work in an area of nursing where you don't have to deal much with patients anyway. Dietitian wouldn't get paid as much as nurse obviously.

    This.

    So many people are misinformed. No RN's or LVN/LPN's clean ass or give bedbaths...that job is for a CNA. The only time they'd ever have to is if they worked in a small hospital that was too cheap to hire them.

    If I could be honest, I'm not sure what I "want" to do any more. I'm working as a personal trainer and I hate it. I figured since I love working out I can help others achieve their fitness oriented goals. Didn't pan out so well. Its all business.

    I'm starting to see things as what can I tolerate as work and get paid well for. In my area it just seems that becoming a dietitian is so difficult as there are not many internship spots available. I feel like I'm bending over backwards here and not getting any recognition, while I could go for a RN and end up making more money. Again, maybe I would really enjoy being a nurse since there are so many routes to pursue in the field, but I can't really be certain until I become one, can I? I have volunteered in a hospital and really enjoy the setting, but have not seen much of what nurses do per say.

    Nurse.

    2 years schooling; more than 60k after 2 years working.

    Dietician.

    4 years undergrad. 2 years MA; 35k first year. I know several that haven't broken 40k after 5 years.

    This is in Texas, not sure about your state. Nurse is BY FAR the better earning potential.

    Plus, as a nurse after a couple of years as a nurse you can go to grad school to become a Nurse Practitioner. You'll be able to prescribe meds and pretty much going to be working directly with doctors and in some offices NPs actually see patients instead of the doctors

    It is true for RNs, but not true for nursing students. In fact, you'll have to bathe people and clean **** during school. I'm a student, I have bathed a few patients (most prefer to bathe themselves or let their family bathe them), but I've not yet cleaned ****.

    100% true. Nurses are too busy giving out meds and doing paperwork. I've been working at a hospital for year now and I have yet to see a nurse shovel some dude's ****.

You aren't really going to move up unless you are striving to be the head dietitian which probably won't step down for 20 years. It seems in nutrition you might only strike it big if you open some sort of private practice.

    Things just seem in better place with nursing right now.

    Which school do you go to? How far in are you? How is the coursework thus far?

    Yeah, I wasn't too sure about nursing at first, but now I can't wait to start practicing. If you're single then traveling nurse is a win, you get to travel and you get paid a lot of money for it.

    I go to University of Texas at Austin, I'm 2nd semester junior, graduating next December. It's a ****ing handful for sure. It's not hard work, it's just A LOT of it.

    I know a chick that lives in Seaside Heights right now making 80k in her 2nd year. Go nursing brah.

    [And she's still with her deadbeat douchebag boyfriend lolololololololol.... women. They love to be treated like sh!t.] Soon as she pays off her loans and boob job, she'll probably dump him.

    Dude I'm a med student and I've had to do DRE's almost daily on some rotations. One of my classmates had to manually disimpact somebody (meaning stick a finger up his butt and take out his poop bit by bit). Everyone does dirty jobs during school.

    Yeah, I know. I'm just telling the guy what's up. Don't want him to think that he won't do any dirty work when he goes through school. Obviously he won't have to do it once he gets his license

    you have an interesting definition of "failure at life." Nurse Anesthetists actually make more than some doctors
