In this episode, I chat with Stephanie Schwartz, a clinical dietitian working in adult acute care
in NYC, about the myths and facts of clinical RD life. Stephanie has worked in medical-surgical units as well as critical
care and is looking to specialize in oncology. She is a second
career dietitian, having gone back to school to get her Masters at New
York University after working in the theater industry after college.
In her spare time, Stephanie makes memes and runs the instagram feed
@thatdietitianlife where she tries to not only provide laughs but also
create a platform for dietitians to connect and discuss about what's
going on in the field. In today's episode, we cover...how to tell the difference between needing to LEAVE clinical versus finding or advocating for a new clinical environment, why there's no such thing as one "right" way to be a dietitian, and the untold benefits of working a clinical job! Connect with Stephanie on IG @thatdietitianlife. And if you feel pressured to take a certain path in your career, or confused about what YOUR path in dietetics might be altogether, read more about my Empowering Dietitians 1:1 Supervision Program at www.empoweringdietitians.com/supervision, or connect with me on IG @empowering.dietitians.
