The Board of Directors of the National Board of Nutrition Support Certification is pleased to announce that after conducting extensive research through several practice audits, we have identified a common core of practice across the various disciplines involved in nutrition support. NBNSC developed the credential, the Certified Nutrition Support Clinician® (CNSC®) that is fair and valid for all professional disciplines involved in nutrition support.
The dietitians, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants and physicians who provide care share a common body of knowledge and expertise that NBNSC has captured in the current exam format. The content of the exam reflects the tasks that healthcare professionals provide on a daily basis.
Those who pass the certification exam beginning in 2008 will receive the credentials CNSC®. The discipline specific credentials of CNSD, CNSN, and CNSP are no longer recognized.
