Be part of a four person Nutritional Services Department in Gainesville, Florida. This is a residential campus serving adults with intellectual disabilities. The center is large and wooded - we have deer in the mornings. It lends itself to walking or biking between homes. You'd have assigned homes and provide annual, quarterly and some monthly updates on those residents. In this setting, you really get to know the people you work with. There are plenty of opportunities for interaction both with residents and other departments campus wide. The RDs work closely with medical and especially with the OT department. Special projects addressed this past year included creating a detailed listing of local restaurant menu items appropriate for different diets and textures, snack groups to address weight loss and improving hydration. There is ample opportunity to pursue areas of special interest to you as long as they benefit the people living on center. Our tray system is COMPUTRITION.
Pay is decent, $51,000 per year, full benefits including paid AND dues, paid licensure and CEUs, choice of 6 different BCBS health insurance plans, a SIMPLE IRA with company contribution, and, best of all, no holidays or weekends and SEVEN WEEKS OFF.
Must be eligible for Florida licensure as a Dietitian/Nutritionist. Prefer RD with Masters.
Additional Salary Information: Includes full benefits and SEVEN WEEKS OFF
