Are you midway through your dietetic internship and starting to worry about the RDN exam? Or maybe you're a few years out from your internship and are trying to brush up on material? I have devoted time, space, and energy to including information on the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) Exam on my website through posts, study materials, and tips. I get comments and emails with questions, and wanted to provide a place for you to reach out to me and ask comments in one spot.
I have answered FAQ below. If you have a question about my experience prepping, studying, or taking the exam, please leave a comment on this post or respond to the survey on my RD Exam homepage. Note: the survey is anonymous, and you can post comments anonymously by name, and leave your email for me to contact you if you like.
My Experience with the RDN Exam
I completed a traditional dietetic internship that ran from September 2013 to June 2014. I studied from May 2014 to August 2014, and took the exam in early August before I started graduate school. I passed the first time.
