FREE CEU: Grow Where You Are Planted in the Nutrition Profession


Grow Where You Are Planted in the Nutrition Profession
To be at the forefront of health and nutrition and ensure a competitive presence in the market place as nutrition and dietetics practitioners, we must grow with new opportunities and embrace change. The current education system is challenged to produce RDs and DTRs who are flexible, open to new opportunities and equipped to lead. Defining and supporting specialist and advanced practice credentialing could position current and future practitioners to assume more practice autonomy, manage valued resources and embrace higher risk in decision making. The NC Dietetic Association and the NC School Health Nutrition Network will offer a webinar on April 18, 4-5 pm that will address, and offer an opportunity for participants to provide input on, new opportunities and potential changes, including the Dietetics Career Development Guide, advanced practice residencies, and a new credentialing framework, including multiple supervised practice pathways and a new credential.
