Advanced Practitioner Certification in Clinical Nutrition: Profile of Certificants

Professionals holding CDR's  RD-AP or RDN-AP credential are experienced registered dietitians who have the knowledge and skill required to autonomously apply the nutrition care process, using an evidenced-based approach, at an optimal level of accuracy and efficiency.

These individuals function above a specialist level with an expanded scope of practice and strategically select the most appropriate nutrition interventions.  They are leaders in effectively planning, evaluating, and communicating targeted outcomes in clinical nutrition.

Advanced practitioners in clinical nutrition also possess the skills required to lead interprofessional teams and direct initiatives to design, develop or evaluate nutrition care systems or protocols.
