Registration as a Nationally Recognised Nutritionist (NRN)

Registration is for graduates of the 11046NAT – Certificate IV in Nutrition (or the previous version 10763NAT – Certificate IV in Nutrition). Registration as a Nationally Recognised Nutritionist (NRN) allows graduates to provide nutritional advice and meal planning services to healthy clients and work collaboratively with Allied Health and Medical Practitioners to support clients.

To be eligible for registration as a Nationally Recognised Nutritionist (NRN), individuals must:

  1. Be a graduate of the 11046NAT – Certificate IV in Nutrition; or
  2. Be a graduate of the 10763NAT – Certificate IV in Nutrition.

NOTE: Practicing NRNs (those who work with clients to provide nutrition/health advice or meal planning) must hold current professional indemnity and public liability insurance. While insurance is not a requirement upon registration request to be an NRN; graduates who wish to work directly with clients to provide health and nutrition coaching within the limitations of the NCA-endorsed Scope of Practice must hold the relevant insurance.
