Tips for new LDNs:
From the DPL Board of Dietitians and Nutritionists: Licensure FAQs
Topics include requirements for licensure, the simplified application for Registered Dietitians, CEUs, license reinstatement, expiration and renewal.
For the current CEU requirements, updated in 2017, click here.
You must complete a minimum of 30 units of continuing education activities every two years to renew your license. A unit of continuing education is described as “a minimum of 50 minutes of organized learning experience” and must pertain directly to the field of nutrition and dietetics. You are responsible for keeping a record of all continuing education you have completed, and you will be required to submit this documentation in the event you are selected for a random audit.
