Under the Nova Scotia College of Dietitians and Nutritionists (NSCDN), there will be an Active Practice License category. A policy and Q&A have been drafted. You are invited to provide feedback.
According to the new Act: "For a period of one year following proclamation of the new Act, every person who, on the coming into force of this Act, has received the certification "Professional Dietitian" from the Nova Scotia Dietetic Association and has engaged in the practice of dietetics in the previous twenty-four months, is deemed eligible for registration with the College and is eligible for the issuing of an active practising licence upon payment of the appropriate fee and the submission of the appropriate application."
A regulatory body licenses dietitians and nutritionists and functions to ensure that they are qualified and practice in a safe, competent, and ethical manner. Active practice hours provide an indication of currency and competency.
