Dietition Vs Nutritionist

Dietitian – The Nutrition Expert

A dietitian is a qualified health professional who helps promote good health through proper nutritional habits.

Dietitians must have:

  • a Bachelor’s degree in nutrition or dietetics
  • an internship for 6 to 12 months at a healthcare facility, foodservice company or nonprofit agency approved by the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics.
  • successful completion of a national exam conducted by the Commission on Dietetic Registration.
  • ongoing education to retain their registration as a dietitian.


  • Are not required to have any such qualifications.
  • This means nutritionists have varying levels of education — from someone with little or no education to an individual who has obtained a bachelor’s, master’s, or even a doctoral degree.
