Work With a Reliable Outpatient Nutrition Provider
What is an RDN
A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) is a nutrition professional that has undergone extensive education and training to become certified to practice and provide Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT). A Dietitian's job as a whole is to translate the complex science of nutrition into practical everyday solutions for healthy living. This is not to be confused with anyone who can call themselves a 'nutritionist' - as this is not regulated. The RDN designation highlights the fact that all registered dietitians are nutritionists but not all nutritionists are registered dietitians.
To be a dietitian there are specific requirements:
• Completed a minimum of a bachelor’s degree at a US regionally accredited university or college and course work accredited or approved by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
• Completed an ACEND-accredited supervised practice program at a health-care facility, community agency, or a foodservice corporation or combined with undergraduate or graduate studies. Typically, a practice program will run six to 12 months in length.
• Passed a national examination administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR). For more information regarding the examination, refer to CDR’s website at www.cdrnet.org.
