Wyoming Nutritionist Certification and Licensing
*Do not assume that any schools and programs listed on this site are a path to obtaining the RD credential. For credential information on actual schools that offer programs to the RD credential, view the ADA's official website at www.eatright.org.
Wyoming has a vast amount of land and a relatively small population. However, there are still very few nutritionists or dietitians practicing throughout the state. For this reason, the demand for nutritionists and other nutrition professionals is forecast to grow faster than many other fields over the coming decade.
To be part of this growing field, the Wyoming Dietetic Association (WDA) requires that graduates of an American Dietetic Association (ADA) accredited bachelors or master’s degree program in nutrition or a closely related field pass the ADA’s certification guidelines and the examination of the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR).
The certification process to become a nutritionist, RD or DTR in the state of Wyoming is as follows:
- A four-year bachelor’s degree or higher composed of courses approved by the ADA’s Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education (CADE) and the WDA.
- Completion of a Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) accredited and supervised practice program or internship in the state of Wyoming.
- Successful completion the CDR examination.
- Complete all continuing educational (CE) requirements to maintain certification with the ADA and the Wyoming Dietetic Association.
