What is the education background of a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist: how does this differ from a nutritionist?
A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) is a food and nutrition expert who has met academic and professional requirements, including:
- Earned a minimum of a bachelor’s degree (B.S.) with course work that was approved by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics
- Completed an accredited, supervised practice program
- Successfully passed the national Registration Examination for Dietitians Administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration
- Completes continuing professional education requirements to maintain registration Adapted from org, the website of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics
“Dietitian” and “nutritionist” are terms that are often used interchangeably, but they are not the same thing. The “RD” and “RDN” credentials are nationally recognized titles that are legally protected and can only be used by practitioners who are authorized by the Commission on Dietetic Registration. The definition and requirements for the term “nutritionist”, on the other hand, can vary by location. In Florida there is state licensure required for the Dietitian/Nutritionist, however anyone can call himself/herself a “nutritionist” regardless of education or training.
