Can I call myself a Nutritionist?
Graduates of the 10698NAT Diploma of Weight Management and 10859NAT Certificate IV in Weight Management are able to call themselves a Nutritionist as there are currently no regulations in Australia around the use of this term. ‘A nutritionist may be a tertiary qualified nutrition professional that has the expertise to provide a range of evidence based nutrition services related to nutrition, public health nutrition, policy and research, and community health. It’s important to note that the term ‘nutritionist’ is not regulated. Therefore, this title may be used by dietitians, nutrition scientists and nutrition graduates – and also those with very limited qualifications in nutrition.‘ (Extract from: https://dietitiansaustralia.org.au/what-dietitans-do/dietitian-or-nutritionist/)
