After successful completion of both DI and their graduate degree, interns receive a Verification Statement allowing them to be eligible to sit for the registration examination for dietitian-nutritionists administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR).

Once interns pass the registration exam, they will be able to practice as Registered Dietitians-Nutritionists. Interns may contact the state affiliate of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics for information about licensure in their states.
