Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Exam
The internship helps prepare the interns for the CDR credentialing exam for Registered Dietitian Nutritionists with review sessions and study guides. Most of our graduates pass the registration exam on their first attempt. Interns are required to successfully complete a mock Registered Dietitian Nutritionist exam as a requirement of the program.
The internship helps to provide ample networking opportunities for interns and graduates at all times during and after completion of the internship. The Internship helps prepare interns for job search activities (through resume development, salary negotiation advice, interview techniques, etc.) and proactively refers interns and graduates to potential employers as an ongoing service.
