Editor's Note: The Compensation & Benefits Survey of the Dietetics Profession continues to provide the most comprehensive and authoritative source of information on compensation in the profession. It should prove to be an asset to practitioners and their employers in all major practice settings, as well as provide reference material for self-employed nutrition and dietetics practitioners.
A detailed electronic report of survey results is available through the Academy website. This comprehensive report details compensation for dozens of core dietitian and dietetic technician jobs, broken down by job title, region, education, experience, supervisory responsibility, and much more. Of particular interest to practitioners will be the interactive salary calculator, which offers the user an estimation of what practitioners with similar characteristics and in similar situations earn, on average. Access this resource (free to Academy members) at www.eatrightPRO.org/salarysurvey.Results are in for the eighth edition of the most comprehensive survey of nutrition and dietetics compensation available: the Compensation & Benefits Survey of the Dietetics Profession 2017, sponsored by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
