Registered Dietetics Professionals: Proven Expertise and Excellence
When you choose a registered dietetics professional to help with your nutrition or health needs, you’re connecting with an individual with demonstrated professional expertise and excellence. Dietetics professionals undergo rigorous academic training and extensive practice experience and maintain their state-of-the-art food and nutrition knowledge by completing ongoing professional education programs.
Registered Dietitians have completed academic and experience requirements established by the Commission on Dietetic Registration, Acadamy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ credentialing agency, including a minimum of a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university and an accredited preprofessional experience program. Some RDs hold additional certifications in specialized areas of practice.
RDs demonstrate thorough knowledge of their fields by passing a national exam administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration and are required to stay on the cutting edge of their fields by regularly completing continuing professional education to maintain registration.
