Professional Issues

The Georgia Board of Examiners of Licensed Dietitians (henceforth the “Board”) administrative staff work very hard to process and issue applications for licensure, and things have changed at the Board office. The licensure process no longer is “delayed”, however with the possible exception of those applications submitted that are incomplete, with deficient items being required that delay processing by the administrative staff. In addition, applications where a background issue is reported (i.e. an arrest, conviction or sanction by another regulatory body) will also cause delays in processing as the Board generally requires a full Board review of the application, depending on the issue reported.

Continuing Professional Education (CPE)

The Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) is the credentialing agency for the American Dietetic Association. The current continuing professional education (CPE) guidelines for RDs are as follows:

CPE hours are accumulated annually from June 1 to May 31.

To maintain registration status, 75 hours of approved CPE must be reported to CDR within each five –year registration period.


Becoming a Credentialed Provider

Being reimbursed for providing Medical Nutrition Therapy by third party payors is both possible and beneficial for Georgia RDs, but there is a process one must go through to make this happen.
