Recognition

Growing public interest in the relationship between diet and health is evident and, as a result, there are increasing demands from the public for reliable and trustworthy information. In response, the Nutrition Society of Australia (NSA) has developed a 'Register of Nutritionists' to establish a list of appropriately qualified nutrition professionals. As a graduate of this course, you may be eligible for registration as an 'Associate Nutritionist'. Following three years of relevant work experience, Associate Nutritionists are able to apply for 'Registered Nutritionist' status. Registration with NSA does not authorise registrants to obtain provider numbers with Medicare or Private Health Insurers.
