CNS Certification - American College of Nutrition
Has anyone taken the Certified Nutrition Specialist certification that is offered by the American College of Nutrition (http://www.cbns.org/CertificationProcess.htm).
I was thinking about doing this, to add to my credentials - since it seems to be pretty well respected and I certainly do not want to be an RD. I am already a licenced nutritionist in New Mexico - but want some kind of board certification in nutrition. I looked into the CCN credential which looks interesting but does not hold hold the same level of respect among our more conventional nutrition piers as does the CNS credential. It certainly appears to be a great alternative to the RD credential.
I would love to know if it is worth applying for. What do you guys think?
