Currently in California, there are no legal requirements for education or credentialing for nutritionists. On the other hand, Registered Dietitians (RD or RDN) are subject to minimum education requirements, credentialing and registration protocols. This partially contributes to the rising number of health and wellness coaches that practice nutrition by any of the various nutritionist or health coach certifications that can be obtained from a simple online program.
The Certified Nutrition Specialist® (CNS) credential is the only nationally recognized and regarded credential available to nutritionists that holds a similar standard to RD/RDN requirements. The CNS certification is fully accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) which distinguishes the CNS for its robust and reliable process for development, implementation, maintenance and governance of the certification. To obtain a CNS, one must complete at least a master's of science in the field of nutrition, which includes coursework in biology, biochemistry, microbiology, human anatomy, and human physiology. It also requires completion of 1,000 hours of supervised field experience and passing a rigorous comprehensive exam.
In order to maintain a high standard of care and a evidence-based approach to nutrition, Aida has worked diligently toward meeting requirements for the CNS credential and successfully completing her examination. As of October 2019, Aida is now credentialed as a Certified Nutrition Specialist®. Practicing nutrition is a science and should be treated as such.
