CDR Credentialing

Effective January 1, 2024, the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) will require a minimum of a master’s degree to be eligible to take the credentialing exam to become a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN).

In addition, CDR requires that individuals complete coursework and supervised practice in program(s) accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND).

*As of January 13, 2021, graduates must also obtain licensure to practice in New Jersey. Graduates who successfully complete the ACEND-accredited dietetic internship through the Combined Master's in Nutrition and Dietetic Internship program at Saint Elizabeth University are eligible to apply to take the CDR credentialing exam to become an RDN.

*Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, licensure in New Jersey has been delayed. Please refer to the NJ Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics licensure page for the latest update:
