Nutrition and Dietetics career/job prospect in Nigeria (2024)

Are you planning to study Nutrition and Dietetics in Nigeria and wondering what your career can look like? Are you already studying and still haven’t aligned with a career path?

This post is written for you.

And if you just want to know whether Nutrition and Dietetics is a good career in Nigeria, YES it is.

Nutrition and Dietetics is a professional course and one of the most profitable courses in Nigeria. The reason you probably didn’t know that is due to the widespread misconception in Nigeria that nutrition and dietetics is often about “cooking”. Well, that misconception is going away now.

Nutrition and Dietetics is NOT all about cooking.

Yes, it can involve cooking and cooking methods. But its for the purpose of supervision of food processes in order to ensure food safety.

What Human Nutrition and Dietetics is all about is beyond that, as you will realize at the end of this post.

What is Nutrition and Dietetics about?

Nutrition and Dietetics is the application of the science of nutrition to the prevention and treatment of diseases. And as well promote good health through dietary measures.

Studying Human Nutrition and Dietetics will equip you with the necessary skills to become a Registered Dietitian (RD) in Nigeria.

Which is the only qualified health professional that can assess, diagnose and treat nutrition-related problems of individuals or a target population.

You will learn how food intake and nutrient requirements can be altered by illness, and how to apply therapeutic diets to treat various disease conditions.

On completion of the four-year academic programme in the university, you are required to proceed on the mandatory one-year internship at a teaching hospital to enable you become a Registered Dietitian (RD).

Or a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist (RDN) as the case may be.

You see, Human Nutrition and Dietetics is not all about cooking.

It is a broad, practical, yet interesting, field that helps you positively affect the lives of many people.

Particularly in prevention and treatment of diseases, though, with the application of dietary measures.

In Nigeria, the department of Human Nutrition and Dietetics is domiciled in the Medical college of most universities. While it is in the Faculty of Agriculture in some.

This bares little meaning on the medical implication of this unique field.

6 things you can do with a degree/higher diploma in Nutrition and Dietetics

Below are work opportunities for graduates of Nutrition and Dietetics in Nigeria.

1. Private Practice

Once you are a Registered Dietician (RD) or Registered Dietician-Nutritionist (RDN), it means you have been licensed to practice as a Dietician.

You can practice independently with individual patients, or target group / population in your area of specialization. You will assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems.

Most common diet-related diseases such as stroke, obesity, diabetes, chronic heart diseases, ischaemia and other diseases require consistent management and monitoring.

A Dietitian comes in handy wherever these medications are.

You could work with people who have an eating disorder, HIV, digestive problems, food allergy, want to lose weight, need to put on weight perhaps after an illness or condition.

And, people who want to improve their sports performance.

As a Registered Dietitian (RD) on practicing independently. You use your knowledge of food to help your clients make the right decisions about food.

Especially, what to eat and how not to eat, which play a major role in the overall health and well being of individuals.

What is the difference between a Nutritionist and a Dietitian?

Nutritionist and Dietitian generally mean the same thing. Both terms are often used loosely to refer to a Doctor of food.

For example, a graduate of Nutrition and Dietetics is a Dietitian or Nutritionist, but not a Registered Dietitian.

More specifically,

Nutritionists are food experts that ensure the food we consume contain the right amount of nutrients we need. While Registered Dietitians are health professionals that apply nutrition knowledge to treat sickness and diseases.

To be a Registered Dietitian, you must undergo a one-year internship in an approved hospital for Dietetics internship. Then you will be given a license to practice.

Nutritionists and Registered Dietitians have slightly different training, though both perform similar roles. They’re also regulated by different professional bodies (Nutrition Society of Nigeria, and Dietetics Association of Nigeria).

Trust your question is answered!

2. Community Health Worker

Community health nutritionists work mainly in educating individuals and target groups / population in communities, villages, and urban areas.

They educated them on food choices, nutrition, health and disease relationship all to ensure members of the community have better health.

Here, you will have a lot of contact with the public. Reason why a good knowledge of sociology is vital for nutritionists.

Dietitians in community settings help in policy making to shape nutritional advice and guidelines for communities. In doing this, you may also work with other agencies such as schools, voluntary organisations, and the military.

You will inform and teach the public and other health professionals about diet and nutrition.

Your aim as a Registered Dietitian (RD) is to promote good health and prevent diseases in individuals and communities.

You could as well be leading a team of Dietitians and Nutritionists providing advice on nutrition to government for policy making.

3. Work in hospital

Registered Dietitians (RD) work in the hospital and form part of the health care team (physicians and other health professionals) in ward rounds in clinics.

You may work with health care professionals such as nurses, as well as supervise the work of Dietetic Technicians in the Dietetics unit / department of the hospital.

You will educate out-patients such as pregnant and lactating women about exclusive breastfeeding, complementary feeding, child nutrition and other crucial areas for healthy child development.

As well as assess, diagnose, and treat diet-related diseases or conditions of in-patients in conjunction with other health professionals.

Really much. Right? I guess.

You will work with and educate people who need special diets as part of their treatment.

These include patients with hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, liver and kidney disorders, pregnant and lactating women, burnt patients, post surgery, eating disorders, or digestive problems.

4. Work in tertiary institutions

Within research and academia, your career path is likely going to be similar to that of other research scientists.

You could work in public and private higher institutions of learning as a lecturer, research assistant / executive or work at a senior level in the university.

Many Nutritionists and Dietitians are currently lecturers in Nigeria’s tertiary institutions.

5. Work in companies and industries

Along industry lines, Nutritionists are very useful in organizations such a NAFDAC, pharmaceutical companies, manufacturing companies (food and beverages).

They regulate food and drug contents, check for allergies and intolerance on the human system, drug-nutrient interaction, as well as several other functions.

Registered Nutritionists are at the heart of these organizations.

6. Start your own business

One of the things that make Nutrition and Dietetics such a unique field is the opportunities it presents in doing your own thing – Business. As a Nutritionist, you can  operate a natural food products and nutrition supplies outlet. You can also start your own Nutrition clinic for management of various chronic diseases.

With your experience and expertise, there are also many business opportunities in food industries, cafeterias, malls, fast foods and supermarkets that you can leverage on.

  1. I studied human anatomy (4) years and now I want to do PGD in nutrition and dietetics so my question is after this will I be a registered dietician?? Or I should go into nursing which is better?

    1. You can’t be a Registered Dietitian by doing PGD in Nutrition and Dietetics or going into Nursing. The only way to be a Registered Dietitian is to have your BSc in Nutrition and Dietetics, and complete a one-year internship in any of the approved hospitals for Dietetics internship.

      You can however, choose to do your PGD in Nutrition and Dietetics or go into Nursing depending on your long-term goals. But none of those paths lead to being a Registered Dietitian.

        1. Yes, there are lots of females in the department across every school, but that not withstanding. Meanwhile, the internship is after the 4 years (for utme) and after the 3 years (for DE).

          1. Thanks for taking time to reply. It really means a lot for me. I checked UNN, and it seems they set aptitude test for DE students. I fall under the catchment area(Edo State).

      2. I studied biochemistry but now want to advance my career. Can I get a direct entry admission to study Nutrition and Dietetics or are there schools that offer part-time study on Nutrition and Dietetics

  24. Hi
    Good morning
    I have a ED in Home Economics, how do I go about becoming a nutrionist or a dietitian from there?

    1. It’s difficult being a dietitian without having a first degree in Nutrition and Dietetics because the academic requirement for one-year internship in dietetics at a teaching hospital is a B.Sc. Nutrition and Dietetics, after which one becomes a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist. However, you can become a Nutritionist with your B.Sc. (Ed) in Home Economics.

  25. Good day Mr Max. Thanks for this article. Please I have Bsc. Home Science and Management (2:1) and wants to do my masters in Human Nutrition and Dietetics, pls is it possible/achievable and how do I go about it?

    1. Yes, its possible, and it depends on the specific university you’re interested in doing the masters and how their postgraduate programmes are structured. However, becoming to Registered Dietitian is a different thing altogether.

  26. Hi, currently have a BSc in biochemistry and want to go for master in nutrition and dietetics…..pls do you know the school that offers this cause and how to go about it? Thanks

    1. University of Calabar offers Masters in Nutrition and Food Science since you already have a B.Sc in Biovhemistry. Other universities also offer masters in related fields concerning nutrition like that.

  27. I just got admitted in to the university to study human nutrition and dietetics…. felt so bad, because I thought the course was not a profitable one…..but after reading this article, I have a better idea and I’m ready to put in my very best.

    1. I’m happy to learn that. And that’s great, put it your best and you will sure profit from it because nutrition and dietetics is the present and future, especially knowing that almost all chronic diseases and health condition are diet-related.

    1. It can only be possible if you go back to school through direct entry to study Human Nutrition and Dietetics. After which, you do a one-year internship which will enable you become to Dietitian. If its something you’re willing to do, that’s the only path.

      1. Tega, it’s nice to know that my dear brother is the one I have been reading about. My daughter who is about entry SS 2 who all d while said she’s going for neurosurgery suddenly said she changed her mind that she wants to be a nutritionist, at first it almost bordered me but after reading your write up, i think I will encourage her. Pls can I get your phone number? I am Vincent Egbo. An urhobo man from Ughelli. Thanks. Mine is 08035159081

    2. Sir I studied hospitality management in polytechnic nd nw I want to further my hnd with nutrition and dietetics is it possible

  28. Can I ve my bsc in human nutrition Nd ditectices and still go for my masters in any re medical course related to medicine

  29. Thank you, Max for this post.

    I have a BSc degree in Biochemistry and I intend doing a MSc in Nutrition. Can I be admitted into a dietetic internship programme after the MS studies? Thank you.
    P.S. It is MSc in Nutrition not MSc in Nutrition and Dietetics.

    1. No you can’t. The only academic requirement to proceed on one-year dietetics internship at recognized hospital is a B.Sc. in Nutrition and Dietetics. This is the only way to become a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist (RDN). However, an M.Sc. in Nutrition can enable you become a Nutritionist.

  30. Hi Max thanks for your update. I have BSc in Applied microbiology, how and what do I need to do to become a licensed RD

    1. You are welcome. You will need to go back to school through direct entry to study Nutrition and Dietetics. After which, you proceed on a one-year internship at a supervised health facility (especially a teaching hospital) to become a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist (RDN).

  31. Wow am very happy for your information, all I want to ask is that if some one go to college of health and used 3 years, if that person want to further more how many years he /she will use in university, and after that the person will do IT then one year service

    1. The person will enter through direct entry and start from 200 level, thereby spending 3 years in the university. And after that, do a one-year internship and youth service.

  32. Hi Tega. Thank you for this!
    For someone who has a BSc in Food Technology and is going for masters in Nutrition and Dietetics, will there still be need for one year internship before the person gets licensed as a registered dietitian?

  33. I’m glad to have stumbled upon this post. I have a BSc in Food Technology and planning to get an MSc in Nutrition and dietetics. To get licensed as a registered dietitian, will I still be required to do 1 year internship in a teaching hospital or do I automatically get licensed on completing the MSc program? Thank you.

    1. You are welcome. Though you may be qualified to do a Masters in Nutrition and Dietetics on the back of your B.Sc in Food Technology, a Master’s in Nutrition and Dietetics cannot qualify you to be a Registered Dietitian.
      So you will still be required to do a one year internship at an approved hospital before you become a licenced Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist (RDN).
      In normal circumstance however, you are required to have a first degree or a minimum of HND in Nutrition and Dietetics, and a one-year internship at an hospital before being licenced as a Registered Dietitian.

  34. Hey, thank you so much for this article, it was really helpful. My question is do graduates pay to learn at the 1 year internship( to become licensed) or does the hospital pay them?

  35. It is compulsory to do ur IT in w hospital and if not ,pls can u give me list of industries and manufacturing companies such as nafdac,etc that offer IT programs to undergraduate students

  36. I have MBBS and MSc in anatomy and run a private medical practice and am interested in nutrition and dietetics what do i need to do to become one of them and to enhance my prevate clinical practice do i need to do a diploma before MSc and PHd

    1. Since you already have an MBBS, you can do a Masters in Public Health Nutrition (MPH) to be a professional Nutritionist. However to be a Registered Dietitian, you’ll need a licence to practice, meaning you have to do a PGD in Nutrition and Dietetics.

  37. 1.Does this department accept transfer students from any other department?
    2. What is the required C.G.P?

  38. Hi Tega, thanks for the updates. My question is can we please get hospitals that pay for the 1year Dietetics internship?

    1. Yes, all the hospitals listed on this post pay Dietetics interns during the course of the one-year program, the only thing is; what they pay vary from hospital to hospital. Dietetics is very pronounce at the University College Hospital, Ibadan compared to all the others.

      1. I am student of doctor diet and nutritional science, 500 level. Please explain what process Am I going to follow for getting license and how much is the fee. If possible, Here’s my WhatsApp number (+923054060815) please kindly send me the details. Thank you.

        1. There’s a slightly different process of getting licenced as a Registered Dietitian in your country. Basically, completing your bachelor’s degree is the first step to becoming professional food doctor.
