Why did I choose this course:
Honestly, I thought that this course is all about cooking.
About my college education:
I thought that this course is all about cooking but I was wrong it's all about giving a diet and computing the caloric content of each individuals. As time goes by, I appreciated and learned to love this course.
Generally Speaking, I learned on how to compute the caloric content of each individuals, how to make a meal plan specifically to those therapeutic patient, how to prepare a complete meal for one day, how to manage a food service industry and lastly in public health, how to address the malnutrition in a barangay, city or LGU.
For me, Renal diet is the most difficult subject that I encountered because it's needed a wide scope of learning and understanding and considered a lot of nutrients that needed to a patient like the sodium, potassium and also the history of their disease. It is very much complicated.
For me the exam was difficult to the person who did not focus/serious on their subject/course. If you don't love your course, the outcome of this are failing on exam and shift to other course. Determination and Hardworking is one of the best required to succeed this course.
My current job:
Nutritionist-Dietitian - is the one who take charge on the food that you eaten and the caloric content of every single foods.
Am I using what I learned in college:
As my present job, the learning that I usually used that serves as a useful things for me is more on public health. We addressed the malnutrition to our city by giving an intervention like Nutrition Education, Micro-nutrient Supplementation, Food Assistance, Food Fortification, Home, School and Community Food Production, Livelihood Assistance and Maternal and Child Health or what we called 7 impact program.
How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
It took a 5 months, because I had a licensure exam after I graduated.
Do I recommend studying BS in Nutrition and Dietetics:
I recommended BS nutrition and dietetics because of having a wide opportunities like in Food service Industry, Hospital, Public Health, Fitness Section and etc.
I worked in local government unit, I earned a low salary but I'm pretty sure in the end you will meet the right and high salary that you want.
Advice to people who are thinking of studying this course:
Study hard, focus and do your best shot!
