RDN Licensure Compact Exploration

Providing nutrition care services in multiple states, either in person or through telehealth, requires Academy members to become licensed according to each state’s requirements which can be time consuming and costly. One potential solution that would facilitate cost-effective interstate practice for licensed registered dietitian nutritionists is the formation of a licensure compact.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics was selected through a competitive grant process for Department of Defense funding to work with The Council of State Governments’ National Center for Interstate Compacts and explore an interstate licensure compact for the dietetics profession. The National Center for Interstate Compacts has provided technical and legal assistance to all the professional and occupational licensing compacts which have been developed or are currently under development.

Register today and join your fellow practitioners to hear representatives from the Academy, the Council of State Governments and the Department of Defense on Wednesday, October 19 from 2-3 p.m. (Central time) for a conversation about the Academy’s exciting efforts to support the mobility of licensed registered dietitian nutritionists—and particularly RDN military spouses—through the development of a new licensure compact for RDNs.
