Alright, well I’ve always wanted to work in the medical field, and for a few years I’ve wanted to be a pediatrician. But all of a sudden I’ve been kind of wanting to be a nutritionist.
Are their salaries very high? Because I’ve been used to the idea of a high salary thinking that I’m being a pediatrician. Are they comfotably living salaries? Or kind of like, barely make it type salary?
I would really go with one’s passion and consider the salary second They say that ‘if you love what you do, you’ll never have to work a day in your life’, and that is so true. A nutritionist, namely a registered dietician (RD), typically makes a lot less than a pediatrician/physician, however, if one’s interests lie more in educating others about sound nutrition and fitness and evaluating and calculating diets to help those with health challenges including diabetes, kidney problems and/or weight management issues, that may be more lucrative in the end if the person is content in one’s job.

Psychiatrist Vs. Nutritionist?
I was wondering which one I want to be after I get our of school and which profession to choose or will benefit me better, I was wondering if I could get some suggestions or some rounded Salaries from anyone.
I don’t think you should base your choice of profession on what the salary is. If you don’t like what you’re doing, it doesn’t matter how much it pays. Money isn’t what is going to ultimately give you a sense of satisfaction in life.
For information on average incomes for different professions, you could try the Department of Labor website.
BTW – Psychiatry is one of the lowest-paying medical specialties. To become a M.D. [psychiatrists are M.D.s] requires 11 years of education.
How much Pay does a………?
hiya, what are the average salaries for these careers per annum? Social worker, dentist, personal trainer, teacher and nutritionist. Also what a levels and uni courses would i need or qualifications.
Social Worker, Teacher and Personal trainer are likely to be in a band of around 20-28k.
Nutritionists may earn a similar, slightly higher band : 22k-32k (or perhaps a little more).
Dentistry would be the highest earning career in this selection, but it takes a lot of work and may earn you quite a few bob 32-60k? Maybe even more?
I think you can do specific uni courses for each of the careers really (personal trainer would be something like Sport Studies etc., teachers would require a teaching degree and maybe a degree of the subject they aim to teach).
Medically-allied uni courses such as Dentistry will want predominantly Sciences (A levels would need to be pretty much top end as well), as well as work experience in the field. Teaching will also require work experience. The other subjects won’t necessarily require flying A-levels but I’d advise trying pretty hard anyway lol
Hope this helps!
