The North Dakota Board of Dietetic Practice (NDBODP) consists of five board members who are appointed by the governor. Members must be residents of the state; three members must be registered dietitians, one member a licensed nutritionist and one member represents a consumer of health services. The Board licenses registered dietitians and nutritionists.


The definition of a licensed nutritionist is a person licensed to provide general nutrition services as provided in the law.


Licensed registered dietitians are defined as persons licensed to practice dietetics as provided in the law.


Note: It is illegal to practice dietetics in North Dakota without a license. Before you consult or hire a registered dietitian, verify the registered dietitian’s licensure or call the NDBODP office at 701.253.0700.
