STATE LICENSURE

The Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) and state licensure boards are separate entities. Questions related to licensure must be directed to the credentialed nutrition and dietetics practitioner’s specific state licensure board or state agency. See below links to each state for Board/Agency, Statute and Regulation.
