I have a bachelor's in nutrition. I wanted to be an RD. My university only took 12 applicants each year for the internship which was also a master's program. The competition was fierce. Unfortunately I did not make the cut. It is very difficult. My bachelor's degree was very difficult. It was full of sciences and labs which made my transition to nursing school much easier. Some of the classes I had to take were of course A&P, basic chemistry, organic chemistry, bio-chemistry, microbiology, advanced nutrition, clinical nutrition, just to name a few. If you want to be an RD, it is a long road, but it is doable. I hear the competition in other states is not as bad...I just happen to be in the Austin, TX area. Good luck!
