Why choose to work with a registered dietitian?‚Äč

Becoming a Registered Dietitian is quite a rigorous process. After completing challenging coursework at an undergraduate level, RDNs are required to complete 1200 hours of supervised practice. The internship is very competitive; the matching process for internships is similar to how medical students are matched to residencies. I completed my supervised practice at Yale New Haven Hospital. After completing our internship requirements, prospective RDNs are required to pass a difficult exam set by the Commission on Dietetics Registration as the credentialing agency for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) to obtain our registration. To ensure that the quality and integrity of an RDN’s practice remains high; 75 CEU hours must be obtained every 5 years to retain our credential and we are expected to adhere to a professional code of ethics.
