FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY WORK WITH A RD VS A "NUTRITIONIST"?
In short, all Registered Dietitians are nutritionists but all nutritionists are not Registered Dietitians. In some states you can call yourself a nutritionist without any formal nutrition education, training, licensing, or certification. In all states it is illegal to call yourself a Registered Dietitian without proper credentialing. To become a Registered Dietitian, the minimum requirements include: a bachelor’s degree with completion of extensive nutrition curriculum, at least 1,200 hours of supervised practice, a comprehensive registration exam, and 75 continuing professional education credits per five-year cycle.
