Hi Jenn,

Thanks for your questions. I'm less familiar with MS distance programs, but someone I know is satisfied with the distance program at U of Bridgeport in Connecticut. Contact CBNS ( for a complete list.

The CBNS issues the CNS certification. Although nutritionists are licensed in many states, the term "nutritionist" is misused and abused by many unlicensed practitioners as well as the public. I find nutritionists generally more open to alternative ideas and they tend to practice in community settings---a good thing. However, hospitals and physicians generally only hire RDs, and do not hire or refer to nutritionists (with or without a CNS); CNSs might be more likely to network with naturopaths, acupuncturists and chiropractors.

Basically, your decision depends on where you see yourself fitting in and the specifics of your career goals (employment in a clinical facility, group education, seeing individual clients, etc).

Hope that was helpful,
Mark Rifkin
