The recent increase in public awareness and recognition of the impact that food can have on health and corresponding growth in healthcare services has helped create diverse and expanded job opportunities. The Dietetics & Nutrition bachelor’s program offered at the Keiser University campus in Melbourne can prepare students for careers as registered dietitians to meet growing demand.
Keiser University’s program combines clinical evaluation, community concerns and food service management, with a focus on proper nutrition and the prevention of chronic diseases to equip students for entry into their profession. Graduates are prepared to work in the fields of community nutrition, health care, food service, employee wellness, business and industry and research. With a graduate degree, dietitians also qualify as up-to-date college instructors.
Keiser University students acquire the skills needed by employers. During their course of training, they conduct innovative initiatives that embrace community involvement; interdisciplinary collaboration, including partnering with a local high school to create a community garden; working with the Florida Department of Health Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children; and supervised, tailored practice experiences.
Keiser University’s many other associate, bachelor, master and doctoral degree programs similarly prepare students for in-demand career opportunities, in, health care, culinary, business technology and legal fields.
