What’s the difference between a Registered Dietitian and a 'Nutritionist'?

Registered Dietitians or Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RD or RDN) are awarded credentials after earning a minimum of a graduate degree from an accredited dietetics program. A master's degree is required to be eligible for the RDN exam. In addition, individuals must complete at least 1,000 hours of supervised practice in multiple areas of the dietetics field. Finally, one must pass CDR’s Registration Examination for Registered Dietitians to become a credentialed as Registered Dietitian. Whereas, anyone with any sort of nutrition experience or interest can call themselves a ‘Nutritionist.’
