Becoming a Registered Dietitian (RD) or Licensed Dietitian - Nutritionist (LDN)
To become a registered dietitian (RD), or registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN), you must meet eligibility requirements established by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics. After graduation from Seton Hill’s program, you will be eligible to take the national examination to become a registered dietitian and take advantage of a wide array of opportunities in health care, medicine, community service, industry, science, business and education. After passing the national registration examination, you can decide whether to use the designation RD or RDN.
The Commonweath of Pennsylvania has defined requirements for obtaining the credential licensed dietitian-nutritionist (LDN). Much like the RD, individuals with the credential LDN have met specific dietetics education, experience and examination requirements. Seton Hill’s program prepares students for this credential.
