Why Hire a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist (RDN or RD)? The Most Educated and Credentialed Food and Nutrition Expert.

The majority of dietitians and nutritionists have a bachelor’s degree in dietetics, foods and nutrition, food service systems management, clinical nutrition or a related area, and many professionals in this field have an advanced degree.

Critical coursework includes nutrition, psychology, chemistry, food science and biology. Dietitians and nutritionists usually undergo several hundred hours of supervised training through qualified internships.

Most states require licenses for dietitians and nutritionists, although some only require state registration or certification. (A few states have no regulations on this profession.) Many dietitians earn the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist credential, which requires candidates to have a bachelor’s degree and complete a dietetic internship program.

Layne received a Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Biochemistry from Cornell University and earned a Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition from New York University. During the masters degree training, Layne interned in Public Relations for Ketchum Health Communications. After completing the masters degree, Layne spent two years at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine doing a research fellowship as the General Clinical Research Nutritionist in the areas of diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic illnesses.
