Abstract
Brief excerpt from interview: I'd like to get into the supervised placement program here, through outreach college. You do it for 10-12 months, and once you complete all the requirements, which are your three rotations, with a certain amount of case studies and coursework, you're eligible for sit for the registered dietitian exam. Once you do that, you get the credential of being an RD... [Writing factors into my future because] if I go back to school I'll be doing a lot of writing. [For instance] to analyze lab cases in your own words, to give a description of someone's history, or if you're counseling somebody, [you have] to write out a report.
