Advanced Practice Residency Programs

The ACEND® Advanced Practice Residency Program (APR) Guidelines were established to foster the development of advanced practice residency programs for registered dietitian nutritionists across the spectrum of dietetics practice. The Academy Foundation has grant-funding available to support institutions interested in starting an Advanced Practice Residency program based on ACEND Guidelines.
