Application Instructions

Bradley University has recently been approved by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) Board as a future education model graduate program. This program integrates didactic coursework with supervised experiential learning in a competency-based curriculum designed to prepare nutrition and dietetics practitioners for future practice. Successful completion of the program will lead to a master’s degree and students will be eligible to sit for the national registration exam for dietitians.
