Verification of Completion, MS in Nutrition combined with the DI
The program is now offering a combined Masters in Nutrition/Dietetic Internship. The MS courses are on-line and taken before supervised practice (dietetic internship) starts.
Supervised practice is divided into five areas: Clinical Dietetics, Departmental Management, Community Nutrition, Professional Development and the Concentration Area, Entrepreneurial Nutrition Practice.
Approximately 475 hours are devoted to clinical dietetics which includes intensive training in a variety of medical surgical specialties, nutrition support and long-term care. Departmental Management is completed in either a healthcare setting or at an alternative site based on the prior experiences of the student. This rotation is accomplished in approximately 196 hours.
During the Community Nutrition rotation, students experience a variety of settings including child nutrition programs, community outreach and community service. An 80 hour culminating practice experience, evidence analysis case study presentation and participation in the New Jersey Dietetic Association’s Annual Meeting and other professional activities comprise the Professional Development rotation. A complete list of our practice hours and rotations can be found at the website on the Dietetic Internship page.
The Entrepreneurial Nutrition Practice concentration includes 160 hours in Nutrition Education and Counseling at the college’s Center for Nutrition and in Corporate Wellness. The Retail/Supermarket unit consists of 64 hours and rounds out the 224 hours in the concentration. A complete list of our practice hours and rotations can be found at the website on the Dietetic Internship page.
