The purpose of this study was to survey registered dietitians in Northeast Tennessee to determine attitudes toward implementation of the nutrition care process prior to and following education about the nutrition care process and/or implementation of the nutrition care process in their respective healthcare facilities. Approximately 100 registered dietitians were involved in the study. Data were collected through electronic submission and written inquiries. The findings of the study identified that there was a need for further research regarding implementation of the nutrition care process and that negative attitudes, opinions, and barriers were broken down by education, implementation, and exposure to the nutrition care process.
