Clarifying the confusing path to nutritionist status
If you're finding the path to choosing where to study to become a nutritionist confusing you're not alone. As one of the most common questions we are asked we completely understand your confusion!
Why is it so confusing?
Currently in Australia and NZ there is no strict control over who can use the label 'nutritionist', that's in part why you see the term used so loosely in so many course names. Having said that, one of the central reasons you're wise to undertake a relevant course is so that at the end of it you are:
a) Accepted by a reputable industry association and;
b) You can gain public liability and indemnity insurances so you can practice safely.
We all have a role to play in community health, the only question is how do we play this role? Through intelligent, evidence-based inquiry we can understand how to health coach to support others in taking on positive behaviour change.
