WHY CNA

The Clinical Nutrition Association (CNA) offers professional registration to qualified Clinical Nutritionists throughout New Zealand. We also act as a point of contact and source of credible health news and information for other health professionals, media and the public.
  • For the first time in New Zealand we have an organisation that solely registers approved Clinical Nutritionists.
  • CNA members keep up to date with the most recent research, and have learned how to apply this holistically.
  • CNA members make science “ digestible” treating people, not just diseases.

To qualify for CNA registration, Clinical Nutritionists must have years of tertiary training at an approved institution, hundreds of hours of clinical practice, and annual continuing education.

ABOUT US

The Clinical Nutrition Association was established in 2009 by a group of concerned and passionate nutritionists. The CNA acts as an umbrella organisation for Clinical Nutritionists around New Zealand, and keenly conveys the properties and benefits of good health to the public.

Currently, national regulations offer no detailed criteria as to who can call themselves a nutritionist. While many practitioners have rightfully earned their title through years of tertiary education and clinical practice, some have not.

Until recently there was no easy way to differentiate between these different skill-sets. For the first time in New Zealand we have an organisation that solely registers approved Clinical Nutritionists. The public can now feel safer in their choice of practitioner.

CNA members keep up-to-date with the most recent research, and have learned how to apply this holistically. Health is more than physical: it also comprises mental, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of life. Changes are only sustainable if they are practical and enjoyable. CNA members make science digestible, treating people, not just diseases.

To qualify for CNA registration, Clinical Nutritionists must have years of tertiary training at an approved institution, hundreds of hours of clinical practice, and annual continued education.
