Why is supervision important?
Since you are not yet licensed to practice nutrition, as your supervisor, I will help guide you in best clinical practices. Credentialing bodies like the BCNS, AHG, and the NANP, require supervision of applied practice hours. Licensing laws vary state to state, please consult your state licensing and supervision requirements. Also, while I hold liability insurance for my practice and mentoring program, you will need to get liability insurance to participate in this Mentorship Program.
Are there limitations to practice?
The Intern should operate within the scope of practice indicated by state laws where the client resides. To learn more about state nutrition laws, visit the Center for Nutrition Advocacy website. Practice in red states is likely be limited to health coaching and education, whereas green states allow for medical nutrition practice. It is up to the intern to get familiar with state licensing laws. Generally, interns can design and deliver educational activities for the public through a variety of venues, consult with related businesses on food and nutrition, and provide nutritional education through one-on-one consults. In states where supplement recommendations are allowed, supplement recommendations for pre-pubescent children, pregnant or lactating women, pre or post major surgery, individuals undergoing chemotherapy or radiation, individuals with liver or kidney disease or anyone taking medications need to be approved by Rebecca prior to recommendation. Talk to Rebecca about any specific questions related to your state during your one-one-one interview.
