Scope and Standards for RDNs and NDTRs

Scope of Practice, Standards of Excellence, Standards of Practice (SOP), and Standards of Professional Performance (SOPP) are tools for credentialed nutrition and dietetics practitioners to determine competence, advance practice, and measure and evaluate an organization’s programs, services, and initiatives. The RDN and NDTR must continually self-assess their skills, education, training, and knowledge, as well as their autonomy, responsibility, and accountability in the practice of nutrition and dietetics.
