Here's what you'll study
The Doctorate in Nutrition and Dietetics (DND) provides a strong, academic foundation in nutrition and dietetics to allow you to meet the challenges of a rapidly developing and changing profession. This three-year, full-time, entry-level coordinated program includes 83 credit hours of graduate work and 1,296 hours (18 credit hours) of supervised practice experience in a wide range of inpatient, outpatient, and community settings.
The supervised practice component will prepare you to translate this knowledge into the provision of healthy, attractive food required for health and healing, patient care in the community and tertiary care hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation facilities, workplace wellness, and community nutrition services.
Successful candidates for the degree are required to meet grade requirements and demonstrate entry-level competency in the supervised practice component of the degree. As a graduate of the DND program, you'll receive verification to sit for the Registration Examination for Dietitians.
