I recently graduated with a degree in nutrition, with an option in dietetics. I have always loved studying nutrition, but during my Senior year of school i realized dietetics was not the field for me. I have chosen to become a nurse and will be starting an accelerated program in June.
I would like to ask the nurses on this forum how much they use their knowledge of nutrition; do you feel that it is a necessary subject to have mastered? or do you think nurses should know more? I'm curious to know if my degree is wasted, or if it will be an advantage for me to have.
Thanks for all your input!
