While some RDN’s may call themselves nutritionists, not all nutritionists can call themselves registered dietitians. “Nutritionist” is an unregulated term in the United States and practitioners may have varying degrees of education and training in nutrition; anyone can call themselves as such.
On the other hand, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist has completed an undergraduate program in nutrition and a one year clinical internship program. Registered Dietitian Nutritionists must pass a national exam administered by the American Dietetic Association and maintain their registered status through continuing education and advanced degrees/certifications for areas of specialization and be registered with the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR).
