My professional goals for Dietetics are seperated into two seperate time frames:

  • Two-year goal:  My two-year professional goals would include applying and enrolling into a Dietetic Internship/ post-graduate school. During this time, I hope to find a specific area of dietetics that I am most interested in, and expand my knowledge in that category. Once the Dietetic Internship is complete, I will pass the Registration Exam for Dietitians to get my RD credential.
  • Five-year goal: My five-year goal is to obtain employment in a professional setting that is related to nutirion and dietetics. I would also like to continue my education and obtain an Associate degree in Nursing, and various other certifications within the Dietetics field that I am most passionate about.
