I'm looking to go back to school but I am disabled with limited mobility and unable to drive. I was thinking of going for a registered dietitian degree but not sure if that would be the best for my circumstances. Does becoming a registered dietitian require any physical demands or driving?? Any one that could answer my questions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

I would strongly encourage you to shadow some local RDs in your area.
Most of the job openings will likely be in hospitals as a clincal dietitian. (On the hospital floor, in the nurse stations, in patient rooms) Also many dietitians are employed by the state or county as community dietitians in a WIC office. (more sit down, but typically lower paying until you are in mangement) Probably the third most common job is in a dialysis unit. Also you can work in a hospital or school kitchen.
Again, I would ask around and shadow. Nothing like spending time and money on a degree you love to find you hate the work.
