Overview

Our faculty of experienced registered dietitians will prepare you for the second and third steps: an Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) accredited internship and passing the National Registration Examination for Dietitians.

Our graduates work as professional dietitians and practitioners in health sciences, sports, food industry, and foodservice areas of nutrition at hospitals, community agencies, and various government and private organizations.

Successful completion of our undergraduate Didactic Program in Dietetics from University of Wisconsin Stout will result in receipt of a verification statement if all verification criteria are met, and eligibility to apply to an accredited dietetic internship in pursuit of becoming a registered dietitian. Dietitians who are employed in the state of Wisconsin are also eligible to become a Certified Dietitian (CD) under current state licensure.

Careers 

Upon graduation, most students become dietetic interns, entering formalized on-the-job training at one of approximately 290 institutions across the country. Others prefer to pursue a graduate degree in Food Science and Nutrition. The ultimate goal of the program is for you to become a registered dietitian by earning a bachelor's degree, completing an internship from a ACEND-approved site, and passing the Registration Examination for Dietitians.
