The University of Iowa demonstrated its leadership in education by submitting an application to be part of the first cohort of programs to be accredited by ACEND under these new standards. Our eligibility application was accepted by ACEND, and we are in the candidacy application and review process for our proposed Future Education Model Graduate Degree program in nutrition and dietetics.
The graduate Master of Clinical Nutrition (M.C.N.), offered by the University of Iowa, requires 36 s.h. of credit. Students must maintain a cumulative g.p.a. of at least 2.50 in major course work. The degree requires no thesis.
- The Master of Clinical Nutrition program prepares students to be competent as a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN).
- According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook released by the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics, the employment of registered dietitians and nutritionists is projected to grow 15 percent from 2016 to 2026, at a much faster rate than the average for all occupations.
- The Pomerantz Career Center offers multiple resources to help students find internships and jobs.
The Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) released the Future Education Model Accreditation Standards for programs in nutrition and dietetics. These accreditation standards integrate didactic coursework with supervised experiential learning in a competency-based curriculum designed to prepare nutrition and dietetics practitioners for future practice.
