The Nevada Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (NvAND) is the leading group of food and nutrition experts in the state of Nevada. Our 400 members are registered dietitians (RDs), dietetic technicians, registered (DTRs), nutrition students and interns.
About Registered Dietitians:
Registered Dietitians (RDs) are highly educated and trained health care professionals who provide nutrition education and dietetic services. All RDs are required to obtain a Bachelor’s degree, complete a qualifying internship, pass a national registration examination, and complete continuing education throughout their career.
RDs work in health promotion, prevention and treatment of disease through the practice of evidence-based medical nutrition therapy. RDs practice in hospitals, long-term care facilities, rehab centers, outpatient clinics, business and industry, community and public health settings, culinary and food service, schools, academia, scientific research, grocery stores, in private practice and other health care settings. The RD is recognized in Medicare regulations as qualified to provide and be reimbursed for medical nutrition therapy for diabetes and renal disease.
