Breaking News: New RDN Credential Now Available for RDs

Just in time to celebrate Registered Dietitian Day 2013: The Academy's Board of Directors and the Commission on Dietetic Registration have taken a historic step: Registered dietitians now have the option to use the credential "registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN)."

We know all registered dietitians are nutritionists – but not all nutritionists are registered dietitians. The new RDN credential positions and promotes you front and center with consumers, increasing recognition and public understanding of both terms "dietitian" and "nutritionist." This action will more accurately reflect who we are and what we do.

Why did we take this action? In short, because members asked for it. In 2010, the Academy began exploring the option of offering the registered dietitian nutritionist credential. It was supported by participants in the 2011 Future Connections Summit and most recently by the Council on Future Practice in its 2012 Visioning Report.

The recommendation was shared and discussed in the House of Delegates at the Fall 2012 meeting. The 2013 joint meeting of the major organizational units (Commission on Dietetic Registration, Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics, Council on Future Practice, Education Committee and Nutrition and Dietetics Educators and Preceptors DPG) supported moving forward.

More information on this exciting new opportunity is available on the Academy's website and in an email that will be sent to all members on March 13.
