The Master of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics with Supervised Experiential Learning (MSND-SEL) is a combined online-onsite single program that integrates the Master of Science degree along with the 1,000 hours of supervised and alternate experiential learning (SEL) hours, in professional work settings and in alternate experiences, required to become eligible to take the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) credentialing Exam for Dietitian Nutritionist (Registered Dietitian Nutritionist) and local licensure exam. The Program follows a Competency-Based Education (CBE) model of the accrediting agency, the Accreditation Council on Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND), in which the curriculum is based on professional roles and student evaluation includes demonstrated performance in some aspects of that role.
