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/".
