The (CNA) offers professional registration to qualified Clinical Nutritionists throughout New Zealand.
A Registered Clinical Nutritionist holds a nutrition qualification that includes clinical training which has been accredited by the CNA.
Currently, national regulations offer no detailed criteria as to who can call themselves a nutritionist. While many practitioners have rightfully earned their title through years of tertiary education and clinical practice, some have not.
Undergoing clinical training is the key difference between a Registered Clinical Nutritionist and a Nutritionist. This clinical training includes health history assessment, consultation skills, clinical examination, nutritional assessment, appropriate functional and diagnostic testing, developing health plans and a minimum of 300 hours of clinical practice.
