I have some good news to share with you all this morning…
I’m officially a Registered Dietitian!!!
Anne, Maria and I took the RD exam yesterday morning. We decided to keep our test date a secret just in case it didn’t go so well and we needed some time to emotionally regroup – but I’m happy to report we all passed with flying colors. After joyously jumping around with our score reports in hand, Anne and I simultaneously broke the news on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with photos with our new credentials. We then made a bee-line for the mall for some celebratory shopping before meeting up with friends for dinner and drinks last night.
We survived 3 semesters of biochemistry and the dreaded comps exam together – it only felt right to finish together and take the RD exam with Anne and Maria. We spent 8 long days studying. There were a few grim moments but these two ladies kept things as fun and as stress-free as possible. Having good friends around definitely lightened things up a bit.
Wow! Ladies, How Wonderful! Not that we ever doubted…
May the days going forward be equally amazing… then on! today the planet, tomorrow the universe! (oh, with stops in SFO, Italy, … )
WAY TO GO!!!!! Congrats girl! I am really proud of you :) I know you are going to do wonderful things!
Now happy wedding planning :)
Congrats! That’s a lot of letters… Glad my first two initials are inside the heart!
Congratulations, Elle!! You did it! I can’t even imagine how you elated you must feel right now! I start my dietetic internship starting this August, and I’m planning to take the exam sometime in the fall of next year. Eeks..I hope I can follow your footsteps! Have fun celebrating! You deserve it!!
So happy for you!! I know how good it feels to finally accomplish something you’ve been working so hard for. Congrats again, hope you get to enjoy some time for yourself! :)
Congrats on your hard work ladies!
Congratulations on your amazing accomplishment, and thank you for linking to the FAQ’s you wrote. I was going to email you earlier this week with some similar questions, so I appreciated reading those!
CONGRATULATIONS! Such a great accomplishment when you can finally begin practicing the profession you worked so hard for! Now for the really important question–did you get any good buys :D
Congrats! The RD Exam is one of those tests that your heart will be coming out of your chest while you are waiting for your score to print! But then it is all about celebrating! I am glad are a part of the Dietitian Community…a happy place!
Congrats! I saw the picture on both of your instagrams! It’s so exciting to see your hard work pay off :)

I never had any doubt that you wouldn’t pass. I’m very proud of you. You are an inspiration.
Aw, thanks Shannon!
I’d say shopping and drinks was a great way to celebrate! Congrats!!

Congratulations!! That’s awesome! Be prepared for people to ask for free advice! HA!
Haha, some already have!
CONGRATS Elle!! All that studying paid off! :-) Doesn’t it feel great to finally add the RD after your name? I know I was excited!!!
It does. Our clinical professor once told us she was signing her checks with her new credentials when she first became a RD. We laughed but now I feel like I’ll be doing the same thing! I can’t wait to update my email signature, checks, business cards… the list goes on.
Congrats! What a great accomplishment! It’s been fun following your journey on your blog.
Congrats Miss RD!! I took my RD exam in July and was so nervous. Doesn’t it feel amazing to finally be done?
It feels incredible. :) Such a relief!
CONGRATS!!! You must feel amazing right now :) Have fun celebrating and relaxing now that you’re done studying!
Congrats! What an accomplishment!!
Congratulations, girls!!!!! So happy for you!
