What is the difference between a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and nutritionist?

 

“All registered dietitians are nutritionists but not all nutritionists are registered dietitians.”

 

A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) is a professional that has earned a bachelor’s degree approved by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics. An RDN must complete an accredited, supervised practicum at a healthcare facility, community agency, or foodservice corporation. After earning a bachelor’s degree and completing their practicum, to earn the RDN title, a national examination administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration must be passed. Additionally, ongoing education is mandatory to maintain this title.

 

As of 2024, anyone who wants to be an RDN must have a master’s degree in an approved field (like food and nutrition sciences, foodservice systems management, business, economics, computer science, sociology, biochemistry, physiology, microbiology and chemistry). 

 

Registered Dietitians not only play an important role in helping people achieve their optimal health through nutrition, they also are key players in terms of public health, shaping families’ and communities’ food choices. 

 

On the other hand, anybody can call themselves a “nutritionist” — whether they’ve completed an online course or attended a weekend conference. Nutritionists, who do not go through the rigorous coursework and requirements to achieve an RDN, are often free from government regulation.  Though well-intentioned, many nutritionists might fall into fads and pop culture tendencies, quick-fixes which don’t create sustainable, meaningful lifestyle changes.

 

When looking for the right nutrition therapy for your needs — medical and health — make sure you ask for credentials. We look forward to working with you.

About Erin Skinner, Pregnancy RDN, IFNCP

I am a board certified Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with a certification in integrative and functional nutrition therapy. I am also a business woman, a wife, a mom, and passionate about women’s and family health. Health and wellness begin with prenatal (even preconception) nutrition. Here are some quick facts about me, my life, and philosophy:

  • I’m a military spouse and veteran.
  • As a working mom of three very active boys, with a husband often deployed, I understand the meaning of time, how important it is to create diet plans for women who need something quick, easy, nutritious, and economical.
  • I have pumped breast milk in cars, planes, tents, meetings, and even shipped it on dry ice to my baby. I understand the importance of breastfeeding nutrition, hydration, and diet tips for mothers to keep their energy up when they’re giving their all.
  • I am an experienced clinician and recognized nutrition leader: I have a private practice, co-created the SIBO academy, and have spent my professional life as a registered dietitian nutritionist to improve women’s health status, wellness, prenatal and postpartum experiences through individualized dietary interventions.

And I can’t wait to be part of your journey.

What to look for when choosing your NYC Registered Dietitian Nutritionist:

Choosing the right RDN to work with makes all the difference. Take the time to look into these three key areas so you have the best nutrition coach to help you reach your goals.

 

  • Reputation: look for reviews, ask about certifications, degrees, specializations, and continued education.
  • Coaching style: a RDN’s style should fit what you’re needing, as an individual, to be successful.
  • Counseling skills: changing the relationship with food and eating can be pretty emotional. Your Registered Dietitian Nutritionist should be able to help you manage the psychology of these changes.
