Salaries and job outlook
According to AND's 2013 Dietetic Compensation and Benefits Survey, among all DTRs in all positions, the median hour wage was $16.30 per hour.. The practice area of food and nutrition management appears to hold the greatest promise for DTRs with a median wage of $21.93. Salary levels vary with region, employment setting, and geographical location, scope of responsibility and supply of DTRs.
The job market for dietetic technicians, registered is assumed to be similar to that for dietitians and nutritionists. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of dietetic technicians is expected to grow faster than average for all occupations through the year 2022 because of increasing emphasis on disease prevention, a growing and aging population, and public interest in nutrition. Employment in hospitals is expected to show little change because of anticipated slow growth and reduced lengths of hospital stay; however, faster growth is anticipated in nursing homes, residential care facilities and physician clinics.
