Become a nutritionist


In Australia, professional nutritional practice is not regulated by the government, and there is no legal protection over the terms ‘Nutritionist’ – anyone can call themselves a Nutritionist. In order to distinguish nutritionists who are properly trained from those who are not, NSA has established a Register of Nutritionists for its members to recognise and encourage high standards of professional training in nutrition.

Nutritionists may work in a number of roles, including research, nutrition consultants and advisors, public health and health promotion officers, community development officers, quality and nutrition coordinators, food technologists, media spokespeople and more.
