Kansas Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics For the Public
Purpose of Dietetic Licensure –> Professional Licensing Protects Consumers!
To ensure that consumers are able to identify and access qualified professionals who demonstrate the knowledge, skill and competency necessary to provide safe and ethical nutrition therapy.
As the public increasingly understands the importance of good nutrition, some individuals without any formal education, training or expertise in human nutrition or dietetics may exploit this newly recognized market.
Additionally, licensure often provides health insurance companies and state and federal governments with the assurance that these practitioners meet standards of professional competence in order to be reimbursed for providing nutrition care services.
