The Pay tab describes typical earnings and how workers in the occupation are compensated—annual salaries, hourly wages, commissions, tips, or bonuses. Within every occupation, earnings vary by experience, responsibility, performance, tenure, and geographic area. For most profiles, this tab has a table with wages in the major industries employing the occupation. It does not include pay for self-employed workers, agriculture workers, or workers in private households because these data are not collected by the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) survey, the source of BLS wage data in the OOH.
Many states require anyone calling himself or herself a dietitian to be licensed or otherwise registered with, or certified by, that state. Fewer states require the same of anyone who calls himself or herself a nutritionist as it isn't a protected occupational title. It is important to investigate thoroughly the requirements in the state in which you plan to practice. The Commission on Dietetic Registration of the American Dietetic Association (ADA) maintains a list of state licensure agencies that you can contact to see what the regulations are in the state in which you want to practice.
