||What should I do to be a
University of Western States
Just wanted to let everyone know about a new Master's program in Nutrition and Functional Medicine from University of Western States. I started it last quarter and I am loving it. It is all online (except there may be one clinical course towards the end of the degree that you would have to travel for). They are associated with IFM and the courses have been great so far. I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a good master's program that goes a bit beyond the basic "dietitian" role. I know I certainly was not interested in just a nutrition master's degree, and the only other thing I was considering was going for an M.S. in nutrition biochemistry but I am SO happy I found this instead. Here's the link to the program if any of you are interested: https://www.uws.edu/human-nutrition-functional-medicine/
Kelsey Marksteiner, RD, email@example.com, WAPF-RD groupwww.nanp.org, approves a number of schools for holistic nutrition studies. http://www.integrativenutrition.com / - Lisa & Diana's school. Both loved the course, but have had trouble making a living doing it. Youíd have to call yourself a health coach. http://nutritionaltherapy.com /
I just love my program. It is through the Nutritional Therapy
Association in Olympia, WA. Classes are offered at community colleges in
larger cities on the west coast. It is based on the NT paradigm. Classes
meet for a very full weekend once a month for one year and we do a lot
of hands-on work learning ways to evaluate people's strengths and
weaknesses. We are primarily educators which is what I love most about
the program. It is taking all the stuff I've been reading and giving it
a framework to pass on to others.

Hawthorn University is the sequel to Hawthorn Institute. I just heard
some presentations by some of their graduates and faculty, including Liz
Lipski PhD CCN (faculty), and Julie Matthews CN whose specialty is
therapeutic dietary measures for autism. Both were excellent. I did my
MS in Human Nutrition with Bridgeport University, an accredited program
which Nancy Pickens is just finishing. It's very clinical, with lots of
emphasis on testing. It did prepare me well to pass the CCN exam.

University of Bridgeport, Conn has an online MS in Human Nutrition and Nutrition Therapy Institute, http://www.ntischool.com/, has an online non-degree program. Both programs apparently recognize and teach about WAPF principles.
In just three years, Maryland University of Integrative Healthís (MUIH) nutrition program has become one of the largest and most in demand programs in the country due to our unique approach to the study of nutrition and the online availability. Our Doctor of Clinical Nutrition (D.C.N.) will build on our core philosophy that acknowledges the psychological, social, and cultural influences of food and diet, while preparing graduates with advanced nutritional, clinical, and research skills. Graduates of this program will be prepared to provide nutrition counseling and education to private clients as well as for groups and will design programs for communities and organizations. These doctoral-prepared clinicians will also be able to work in a number of health and wellness settings, teach at the college level, publish independent research, and serve in leadership positions in the nutrition and health arena
. The DCN is a post-masterís professional doctorate. Qualified prospective students will have a masterís degree, preferably in nutrition or a comparable field, and must have completed certain prerequisite requirements. The program will be delivered in a hybrid format; over the course of two years, students will complete 42 of the 48 doctoral credits online and study on campus during four weekends to complete the remaining six credits. As part of the program, students will publish independent research and hone clinical skills during an experiential residency program.
MUIH is delighted to have reached this organizational milestone and looks forward to working with the inaugural class of doctoral students in the new year.
