What is a Registered Dietitian?
Registered Dietitians are health professionals who meet standards required by the Dietitians Board, and have both an undergraduate science degree (in human nutrition) and a post-graduate qualification in Dietetics. To practise in New Zealand, a Dietitian must, by law, be registered with the Dietitians Board, and hold a current practising certificate. The Dietitians Board protects the health and safety of the New Zealand public under the Health Practitioners Competency Act (HPCA) 2003, by ensuring that every Dietitian working in New Zealand is fit to practice and meets standards of professionalism. Only those on the Register can call themselves a Dietitian and practice as a Dietitian.
In New Zealand, Dietitians are the only nutrition health professionals regulated by law. Dietitians work in a variety of settings including hospitals, in the community, public health, food service, sports, education, research, media and the food industry.
