The Profession of Dietetics: A Team Approach, Fifth Edition by June R. Payne-Palacio and Deborah D. Canter recently earned 4 stars from Doody's Review Service. Reviewer, Nawal Al-Nouri, Associates; BS Candidate 2013, from UIC College of Applied Health Sciences, writes that, "If I had read this book prior to admission to the program, I may have felt more equipped entering the field, both as a student and as a dietetic intern."
Read more excerpts from the review:
"...discusses the profession of dietetics in general, including how it began, details of the profession including the importance of a team approach, the education, supervised practice, and credentialing necessary to enter the field, information on the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and other professional organizations, and how to prepare for entering the field after formal education and training. I found part III, which covers how to prepare to enter the field of dietetics, the most helpful. This field offers so many pathways to obtain credentials, which may be confusing to many. This book clearly delineates the various pathways one may follow in order to obtain a dietetic credential.
This book offers a comprehensive review of the profession of dietetics and will be very useful for prospective students interested in this field. Aside from prospective students, it may also be useful for those in other professions interested in gaining insight into the dietetics, as well as current students interested in bridging the gap between student and professional. This update is necessary because the profession of dietetics is constantly evolving in areas such as salary range, the pathway to becoming an RD or DTR, ways to apply to various supervised practices, [and] the credentialing process."
