Nutrition support is a specialized practice that requires the expertise of multiple health-care professionals including physicians, dietitians, pharmacists, physician assistants, and nurses.
NBNSC's credentialing program provides a valuable addition to your professional experience and contributes to excellent care. The Certified Nutrition Support Clinician®(CNSC®) credential identifies you as a qualified nutrition support provider. It is the most widely accepted, visible nutrition support certification with recognition both nationally and internationally.

COVID-19 Update: The
NBNSC has been notified by the Professional Testing Corporation (PTC) that
Prometric has closed all their test centers through at least April 16, 2020.
This reopening date is before the CNSC testing period begins on April 25th.
However, there is also a strong possibility that this might not happen and that
the testing centers will not be open for the CNSC exam. If candidates cannot
test, the NBNSC and PTC will provide them with the available options at
that time, these options may include the extending of all expiring CNSC
certification until the end of the next available testing period. N.B.
This extension will not apply to expiring certificates if the candidate has not
already signed up for the April 2020 exam.
We are working closely
with PTC as things keep evolving and changing. PTC has a website
(https://ptcny.com/ptc-update-coronavirus-outbreak/) which will be updated
regularly with the testing status. We advise all candidate to check back with
PTC closer to the April 25th start date at which time we will have a clearer
idea of the options.
