Certification and Standards of  Professional Practice

The majority of the members of the Indiana Dietetics in Health Care Communities Dietetic Practice Group are registered, certified dietitians providing service to long -term care or assisted living facilities. According to Indiana Health Facilities Rules 410 IAC 16.2 registered dietitians who are practicing in healthcare facilities that are licensed by the state of Indiana must be certified. “A qualified dietitian is one who is certified under
Indiana Code 25-14.5”.

Recently providers have contacted registered dietitians (RDs) and /or the Indiana Dietitians Certification Board to clarify if RDs either full time or in a consulting role must be certified. The Indiana Dietitians Certification Board is not responsible for ensuring that RDs meet the certification requirement for Indiana Health Facilities Rules 410 IAC 16.2. However, to verify that an RD is certified please access and click online status verification service.

RDs who are certified must complete at least 30 hours of continuing education every two years. Effective July 20, 2016 Rule 6, Standards of Professional Practice was approved and added to the Dietitians Standards and Rules. These standards can be accessed on the Indiana Dietitian Certification web site
