Dietitians are health professionals registered under theHealth Practitioners Competence Assurance act 2003 and meet standards required by the NZ Dietitians Board.
Dietitianshave a science degree in human nutrition as well as a postgraduate Diploma or Masters in Dietetics. By law, a Dietitian must hold a NZ current practicing certificate, participate in a continuing competency programme and adhere to a code of ethics.
Nutritionists: The term nutritionist is not protected and can therefore be used by anyone regardless of qualifications. Nutritionists who meet set criteria are able to become registered Nutritionists with the Nutrition Society of New Zealand.
