 What is a Registered Dietitian ?

  • A Registered Dietitian (RD) is a licensed food and nutrition expert.
  • RDs have a minimum a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition degree from an accredited university.
  • They must perform a supervised internship that includes 900+ hours of hands on experience working in a variety of medical and wellness settings.
  • They must pass a national comprehensive exam and continue to earn professional credits to maintain licensure.


A Registered Dietitian is not a nutritionist, nutrition coach or nutrition counselor. A nutritionist, nutrition coach or nutrition counselor requires no formal training, education or certification.
