Salaries and job outlook
According to ADA's 2009 Dietetic Compensation and Benefits Survey, half of all DTRs in the US who have been working in the field full-time less than five years earn between $33,800 and $37,700 per year. Salary levels vary with region, employment setting, 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 2016 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.
