Hawaii nutritionists and dietitians provide a long list of important nutritional services to patients and clients throughout the state. Duties include those from creating diet charts and health and fitness plans to supervising food preparation, assisting medical assessments of doctors and nurses to providing nutritional advice to the elderly and to those with specific ailments including obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Nutrition Dietetics

In order to become eligible to practice nutrition or dietetics in Hawaii, you must become certified. Certification protects not only the integrity of the industry and those practicing in nutritional sciences but the patients and clients they serve. Licensed nutritionists and dietitians in Hawaii and across the country are constantly learning the latest research and practice methods to treat patients with better and more efficient care. The first step to becoming certified is completion of a degree program that incorporates the latest knowledge and skills into its curriculum.

The state of Hawaii and the Hawaii Dietetic Association require that all practicing dietitians become registered with the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR), the American Dietetic Association’s official licensing body. Hawaii does not require a state-specific examination or registration process, recognizing instead that of the CDR.

Certification to become a registered dietitian (RD) or dietetic technician, registered (DTR) by the CDR and the HDA are as follows:

  1. Completion of an acceptable four-year degree or higher focused on nutrition science, dietetics or closely related field
  2. Completion of the CDR's registration examination for dietitians
  3. Registration with the Hawaii State Board of Licensing
