North Dakota


The Governor of North Dakota signed Senate Bill 2187 into law on April 16, 2021. 

This legislation revises the dietitian and nutritionist act and creates a licensure pathway for Certified Nutrition Specialists (CNSs) who meet the specified education, supervised practice, and exam requirements to become licensed in the state. We are pleased to have worked with leading nutrition stakeholders to improve and support this legislation!  

Once the nutrition and dietetics rules and regulations have been revised in accordance with the new law, CNSs will be able to become licensed to provide medical nutrition therapy in North Dakota.
