We are Nutrition Genius

We help future RDs like yourself cut the chaos, skip the madness, and leave soul-crushing study tactics in the dust so you can conquer the RD exam. Using science-based strategies you can study smarter, pass faster, then get out there to be the best dietitian you can be. 


WE'RE HERE TO SHOW YOU YOUR WINGS.

We see it this way. We want you to be the bird that breaks the shell and gains a new world, a new perspective on what is possible for you.

 

Most people are held back by their mindset – not their ability. They think intelligence is fixed, but it’s not. The truth is, you can grow everyday. New brain science shows that the anatomy of your brain cells can change. To us, at Nutrition Genius, this means you can transform and reinvent yourself as many times as you want in your life. 

We think that this is the power of knowledge, and we’re interested in helping to create a brand new breed of bold, smart, talented dietitians. Dietitians who believe in themselves and are really good at what they do. For that reason, we’ve deconstructed piles research from the science of successful learning and memory and packed it into programs to help you pass the RD exam and be the best dietitian you can be. 

LET’S CUT TO THE CHASE, SHALL WE? WHAT IS A “SCIENCE-BASED LEARNING STRATEGY”?


These science-based strategies, this knowledge, this knack of understanding how learning and memory works can help you:

  1. Break into the bank of the confidence you thought you never had to study smart, pass faster, and become a sophisticated test taker in very little time.
  2. Stop fumbling around without a plan! Confront your monkey mind and get the steps, the quickest, most effective path to blow the exam out of the water.
  3. Never over study again, drench in despair, or break into a sweat when we whisper “RD Exam” into your ears.
  4. Tell your Mom, Dad, grandma — your garbage man — that you just passed the RD exam and you’re officially a Registered Dietitian. 

 In other words, this is the faster, easier way to win. And science-based strategies will help you get there.


OUR VISION

We believe dietitians give tremendous value to the world. More than they probably give themselves credit for. They solve interesting problems, lead, inspire, connect, and spark meaningful change in people’s lives. Every dietitian has the opportunity to shine. Our vision is that you are equipped with the knowledge and confidence in yourself to make an incredible mark in dietetics- on your own accord. 

We’ve worked everything that we believe —everything that we’ve researched — into creating a new educational program to assist you in passing the RD exam. 

OUR PHILOSOPHY: 4 PRINCIPLES

We’ve been staring at this research for a while now. We’ve summarized it into 4 unique principles. Flip through our file to see what we mean.

 

We take learning strategies from research —from the science of learning & memory- and we aim to apply them to real -life skills, scenarios, and thinking processes an RD might use in her practice. Quick example: Graphic organizers are proven to improve your memory by showing you the relationships between different pieces of information. Using mock-up nutrition assessments, you declutter the thinking process an RD might use on the job as well as accomplish a variety of things: improve your memory, deepen your understanding, and become a more confident dietitian.

Everything is connected to nutrition; and learning and memory works the same. Connecting new information to preexisting information strengthens the neural pathways in your brain, helping you jump on the high-speed train to faster learning, understanding, and memory. The more connections you make while learning something, the better you understand nutrition. We weave these science-based tricks into our program.

Research shows creativity – drawing, sketching, art- can improve your memory and understanding of a subject. We bring the art to nutrition and use illustrations, creative memory tricks to different topics in dietetics. This way, you become “quicker on your feet” while on the job, remember information faster, and explain nutrition better to your patients and clients.

How you see yourself is an important key to realizing your dreams, especially as a working dietitian. We promote you and focus on investing in you, so you get out there in the nutrition force and feel great about what you do.

 HERE ARE SOME OTHER GREAT PLACES TO START.

HI EVERYONE. I’M PRIYANKA, THE FOUNDER OF NUTRITION GENIUS.

I’m also a Registered Dietitian.  Over the last 9 years, I’ve researched the science behind successful learning and memory and applied it as a young nutrition student, intern, and working RD. One semester in college, in 2009, I saw a dramatic boost in my grades and began researching. I’ve had the pleasure to share this knowledge with a variety of people in the nutrition arena: colleagues, preceptors, and especially eligible RDs – some of which were stuck or struggled to pass the RD examination.

Initially, I started sharing random ideas on blogs, then this blossomed into conversations over telephone. I started a website in 2013 February and worked with future dietitians preparing for the exam. I continued working as a DTR in long-term care, then as an clinical dietitian and manager in an acute-care setting. I started a newsletter in the summer and launched a YouTube channel in Fall of 2016.

 

This introduction doesn’t even scratch the surface of Nutrition Genius. For that reason, you can read more on how all of this all really started.
