Benefits of Registration
The NSA has established a Register of Nutritionists to recognise and encourage high standards of professional training in nutrition. Individuals with a Bachelor degree, or higher, with at least a major in nutrition, can now apply for registration. Individuals with alternative qualifications that develop competencies in nutrition (such as a science degree with post doctoral experience and publications in nutrition sciences) will be assessed on a case by case basis by the Registration committee.
What are the benefits of being a Registered Nutritionist?
Registration provides you with:
- the use of a title and letters after your name (a post-nominal: ANutr, RNutr, RPHNutr, or RAnNutr) to professionally identify yourself as experienced and qualified in nutrition science
- a dated certificate that represents recognition of your professional competency in nutrition science from a scientific society
- a public listing on the Register of Nutritionists
- access to professional development activities.
How does being on the Register of Nutritionists benefit the science of nutrition?
Being on the register:
- provides a publicly available list of qualified nutrition scientists which enables employers or members of the public to easily and confidently assess the validity of your nutrition expertise
- differentiates bachelor degree qualified nutrition scientists from inappropriately qualified individuals professing nutrition knowledge to members of the public
- contributes to the growth of an international community of appropriately qualified nutrition scientists.
