I am a 36-year-old Mom at home. I do have a BS degree from a very reputable university. In your opinion would it be too late for me to pursue a career as an RD? Any advice would be very much appreciated.
It would depend on what your Bachelor of Science degree is in. The pre-requisites for dietetics are science (biology and chemistry) and nutrition. After completing a BS in nutrition, one has to complete an internship or a clinical experience plus a Masters degree. Or if you lived near a college dietetics program that combined the BS degree and internship (Coordinated Undergraduate Program) you could complete the coursework and internship at the same time.
