The Accreditation Council for Nutrition Professional Education accredits master’s-degree clinical programs in nutrition.  We enhance the quality of learning by setting standards for knowledge and skills needed to practice advanced nutrition care safely and effectively.

ACNPE-accredited programs prepare graduates for a variety of career paths and professional opportunities.  Graduates help to further public and professional understanding of the foundational role of nutrition -- as an essential component of a collaborative healthcare system that aims to optimize health as well as to prevent and treat illness.  Advanced nutrition professionals play a vital role in slowing the epidemic of obesity and chronic disease, positively impacting the high cost of healthcare.
