BSND Coordinated Program Goals
Goal One: To provide clinical and didactic learning experiences reflecting the breadth of dietetic practice that allows the registered dietetic technician (DTR) to become competent entry-level registered dietitian nutritionists (RDN) and graduates with the skills necessary to assume expanding roles in the health care environment.
Objective for Goal 1
- At least 80% of CP graduates will take the RDN Exam within 12 months of graduation.
- At least 80 % of graduates over a five-year period will pass the Commission on Dietetic Registration RDN registration exam
- Based on alumni survey data, 70 % or more of graduates who seek employment in dietetics will be employed within one year of graduation.
- Based on alumni survey data, 50 % or more of graduates will enroll in an advanced degree program, seek certification in specialty practice areas, or contribute to the community or professional leadership.
Goal 2: Provide an innovative pathway for the DTR to complete the CP utilizing online learning environment, emerging technologies, and supervised practice in their geographic locale.
Objective for Goal 2
- Over a five-year period, 80 percent of students who enroll in the CP will complete all program requirements within 150 percent of the time planned for completion (4.5 years part-time).
