The Accreditation Council for Nutrition Professional Education accredits master’s-degree clinical programs and Supervised Practice Experience (SPE) 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.
