"I was very happy to have the opportunity to complete a distance internship allowing me to stay in my home area. I also work well and learn best on my own and this internship allowed me that freedom. This internship meant that I could move toward my dream of becoming a dietitian so that I am one step closer to working with diabetic clients and making sure that such clients gain the knowledge they need to be healthy and manage their disease. I am happy to announce that as of this past Saturday I am officially a Registered Dietitian !! I begin my new position this week as a PRN Dietitian for Crozer Health System where I will be working in both inpatient and outpatient! Very exciting!!! Thank you for providing me the opportunity to achieve this dream." Danielle Volpe RDN Westchester University September 11, 2017
I liked the freedom of being able to choose my own rotation sites and not having to relocate. My preceptors were absolutely amazing. I liked the orientation that was provided before the program started. I went to Boston for the first time and it was a new adventure for me. I have made lifelong friends with my small groups and seeing them every week was great for mental support. The weekly webinars were also great because I got to hear what other interns were doing. I am please to announce that I have passed the exam!! Thank you for all your support and guidance throughout the internship. Reiko Kobayashi-Wagner MS, RDN Bastyr University September 12, 2017
"I have already recommended this internship to many nutrition students. Although challenging at times, I believe this internship has taught me how to take full responsibility and use my network and resources wisely. I would also love to precept future interns and help them with additional networking opportunities. This was a great opportunity to grow as not only a nutrition professional but as a person in general. I learned so much from all of my preceptors about various nutrition topics regarding different populations, but more importantly, I learned and practiced expressing many professional attributes throughout. Within these past 7 months I feel I have grown tremendously in how I present myself to others in a professional manner. I can't thank the entire PNC team enough for helping me complete this program and preparing me for my future career in Dietetics! I wanted to inform you that as of 7PM tonight I officially passed the RD exam. Thank you all so much for everything you have done for me throughout my internship experience. It has been a pleasure working with you and I look forward to starting my career as an RD!" Lauren Gould RDN Johnson and Wales University September 11, 2017
"Thank you for all you have done for us throughout the internship. It has been a great journey and I hope you feel that it went well and are excited for the next group! I really enjoyed my internship and am so grateful that I was able to make it specific to my interests and make networking connections throughout. I will continue to encourage others to apply for the PNCDDI and can't wait to see what the internship looks like in the future. Again, thank you for this wonderful opportunity to allow me to continue to pursue my dream of becoming a Dietitian." Hannah Brass RDN Colorado State University
"I am just so grateful to have had this opportunity. My internship experience was really wonderful, and I feel I gained experience in most of the areas of dietetics that I wished to. The support and feedback I received from peers and the director during the past several months have been invaluable and pushed me to grow. Additionally, I found many of the activities and assignments to further my knowledge and prepare me for the profession. Thank you for everything!!!" Alyssa Rieser MS, RDN Bastyr University
