What is the difference between a registered dietitian and a nutritionist?
Registered Dietitians (RDs) are food and nutrition experts who translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. Just as all MD's are physicians, all Registered Dietitians are nutritionists. The term dietitian and nutritionist can be inter-changed. However, the word "nutritionist" is used by all sorts of nutritional experts, with widely varying levels of education and clinical experience. RDs have met rigorous academic and professional requirements, including passing an extensive national examination administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration, as well as earning continuing professional education credits throughout their careers to maintain a high level of practice.
