MS in Nutrition with Didactic Program in Dietetics (MSN/DPD)

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The master's didactic program in dietetics (MSN/DPD) fulfills the academic and competency requirements for registered dietitian eligibility. The Bastyr MSN/DPD allows students to complete a didactic program while pursuing a Master of Science in Nutrition.

The program requirements are over and above the degree requirements outlined by the University. Verified graduation from the DPD program provides students with the technical and academic knowledge to compete for a an ACEND-accredited supervised practice program, the second step to becoming a RDN with the third step being the successful pass on the RDN Exam.

The mission of the MSN-DPD program at Bastyr University is to prepare graduate students for supervised practice leading to eligibility for the CDR credentialing exam to become registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) who will be agents of change in bringing the perspective of whole foods, environmental awareness of food choices, and integrative medicine into their dietetic-and nutrition-related practices.
