What is a Registered Dietitian?

A Registered Dietitian (RD) is a food and nutrition expert who has met academic and professional requirements including:
  • A bachelor’s degree with course work approved by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND). Coursework typically includes food and nutrition sciences, foodservice systems management, business, economics, computer science, sociology, biochemistry, physiology, microbiology and chemistry.
  • An accredited, supervised practice program at a health care facility, community agency or foodservice corporation.
  • A national examination administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration.
  • Continuing professional educational (CPE) requirements to maintain registration on an ongoing basis.

Registered Dietitians (RDs) who are members of the Academy [Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND)] are not only food and nutrition experts — they are leaders in the field of dietetics. Members of the Academy play a key role in shaping the public’s food choices, thereby improving nutritional status and treating persons with illness or injury. Members offer preventive and medical nutrition therapy services in a variety of settings, including health care facilities, home health care, foodservice, business, research, and educational organizations.

Every one of the Academy’s wide array of member benefits is designed to advance knowledge and skills and enhance networking opportunities of its members. These resources, combined with the qualifications that are required to become a registered dietitian nutritionist, enable RDNs to translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living and contribute to the nutrition expertise that RDNs use to help individuals make personalized, positive lifestyle changes.
