ACEND is working on the future model for education in nutrition and dietetics

ACEND has developed a FAQ to help clarify the model and address questions and concerns being raised. We encourage you to visit the ACEND Standards Webpage to view the Rationale Document and FAQ and learn about ongoing updates.

In addition, ACEND is launching a more intensive communications plan to increase the frequency and types of communications that are being done. Both the Rationale Document and FAQ are considered “living documents” and periodically will be updated to reflect the progress in the development process. For example, the Rationale Document was updated in July with a summary of comments received about the model and additional work done by ACEND to better articulate future needs in community practice. Beginning the first of August, the website also will include a monthly update to share progress on ACEND’s standards and competency development work.
