Work Environment

Nutritionists usually work in medical office settings that are clean, well lit, and organized. Dietitians generally work in offices or kitchens. Such environments are usually clean and well lit, as well, although some kitchens may be hot and stifling. Some nutritionists sit much of the time, while others spend all day on their feet. Most work 40-hour weeks, but some—especially nutritionists who work for hospitals—are required to work on weekends and at odd hours. Approximately 4 percent of dietitians and nutritionists are self-employed.
