Apex nutritionists have developed the bodybugg calorie management system for their clients. With this program, nutritionists will learn how to provide customers with what they need to achieve their ideal body weight.
This innovative system uses arm bands and smart phones to track calories, making it convenient for users to do the right decisions away from home. The Online Professional Certificate in Nutrition for Optimal Health, Wellness, and Sports has been designed to meet the growing demand of allied health and medical professionals, registered dieticians, fitness professionals, personal trainers, and the general public who want to learn about developing individualized nutritional programs for clients, patients, or for personal improvement.
This innovative and comprehensive Web-based noncredit certificate program provides an in-depth examination of contemporary nutritional topics such as meal plan review, functional food implementation, antioxidants, public nutrition, sports nutrition, vitamin supplementation, and weight management. In addition to nutritionists at the doctoral level, the CBNS offers certification to other health professionals with masters or PhD degrees, such as nutritionists, registered dietitians, pharmacists, nurses and others, with significant experience as professional nutritionists.
Adhering to these strict guidelines ensures that professionals with a Certified Nutrition Specialist credential have truly earned it. They must also show solid background in the nutrition profession and pass a rigorous exam.
Applicants must send university transcripts, documentation of nutrition experience, two letters of recommendation from health care professionals and copies of any professional licenses. Passing this exam and obtaining a Certified Nutrition Specialist credential will give nutritionists the advantage over others in their field. The National Board of Nutrition Support Certification supports nutrition care by certified nutrition specialists.
After certifying through the board, these specialists have received the necessary knowledge and skills necessary for providing quality service to clients. The test for certification includes methods to evaluate nutritional needs of patients and assess nutrient requirements.
The program recommends that they have at least two years in a specialized nutrition field. While that is not required, there are other eligibility requirements. Candidates should be a registered dietitian, registered nurse, licensed physician, licensed pharmacist or physician assistant.
Once tested, professionals will be informed within six weeks of their pass or fail status. They may take the exam as many times as necessary to pass, but they can only take it once per testing period. They will have to pay additional certification fees to make another attempt at the test. The Certified Nutritional Consultant C. Candidates must have a high school diploma or equivalent.
