WHAT IS A REGISTERED DIETITIAN NUTRITIONIST?

A registered dietitian nutritionist is a food and nutrition expert who qualifies for the RDN credential by meeting a number of academic and professional requirements including completing a bachelor’s degree with coursework approved by an accreditation council, completing an accredited practice program (internship), passing a national registration exam, and completing continuing professional education requirements to maintain registration.  Registered dietitian nutritionists also may need to be licensed or certified in their state of practice (Wisconsin- CD).  For more information visit http://www.eatright.org/.
