Become a Traveling Dietitian With Us
Traveling dietitians are becoming more and more common around the office here at Dietitians on Demand. The recruiters enjoy working with travelers because it helps us fill a position even faster, especially if a local candidate can’t be found right away.
As of today, we have nine traveling dietitians out in the field. They are scattered across the country in Maryland, Virginia, Florida, North Dakota and California. Deirdre, a dietitian based in Minnesota, is working in California. She’s been working at a long term care facility in northern California. She’s about an hour from Yosemite National Park and San Francisco, she she’s spent her weekends exploring. Deirdre sent a few pictures and we wanted to share them!
We want the traveling experience to be effortless and fun for the RD, and also beneficial to our clients. Expenses covered include lodging (usually a furnished apartment), transportation (either round-trip airfare or mileage), a rental car if you are flying and reimbursement for state license, if required.

- At least one year of experience in a clinical setting
