Statutes by State (List)


This alternate format of the Licensure Statutes Mapdata is provided for accessibility as well as convenience for Academy members who prefer a list.

  • Practice Exclusivity: a license is required either to provide MNT or to practice dietetics, subject to any exemptions shown in popups, as explained below.
  • Licensure of Title Only or Certification of RDNs: the state only licenses the title "licensed dietitian" (or a similar title) or provides an optional certification which may facilitate reimbursement or employment in certain facilities. In these states, a Board exists to implement the law, but no license is required to practice MNT or dietetics.
  • Title Protection Without Formal State Regulation: the state restricts use of the title to certain credentialed professionals, but no Board exists, and no license is required to use the title or to practice any aspect of dietetics.
