If you are a clinical nutrition professional with an advanced degree and experience in a clinical, institutional or community setting (or internship/rotation), you may want to consider earning a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS) credential. Issued by the Board for Certification of Nutrition Specialists, this credential is a great way to demonstrate competence and experience in the field, and it serves as a potential pathway to state licensure. Having a CNS credential also connects you with other nutrition professionals, as well as resources, events and continuing education.

Earning a CNS credential involves accumulating the required amount of supervised practice hours and the experience culminates in a credentialing exam. While the nature and location of your supervised practice will be up to you, turn to Study. com when it's time to prepare for the CNS credentialing exam. Our CNS course is expert-designed to provide a comprehensive test prep experience that suits your schedule.

It's so easy to get started; first, try a completely free 15-question practice test and get a sneak peek at what's waiting for you on the CNS exam. After finishing the test, we'll deliver instant feedback on your results that you can use to guide the rest of your studies. Then, if you decide to register and continue studying with us, your test results will point out the chapters and lessons in our CNS prep course that may be the most helpful for you.

Our CNS prep course contains a complete review of everything you'll encounter on the exam. However, we break down major and complex subjects into fun-to-follow video lessons in a modular format. You can work through our fully transcribed video lessons at any time, and in any order that best suits your needs. There's no need to worry about losing your place as our course dashboard keeps track of the contents you have finished. Each lesson also includes a self-assessed quiz to help make sure you have a good grasp on the subject. And, because our course are totally online, you can access your materials any time and study however you like. If you prefer a more structured approach, use our customizable study schedules to set your own goals and timetables. If any questions arise, there's no need to wait a long time for a professor's response; simply ask our team of educational experts, always on hand with quick and friendly responses.

Ready to dive right into a challenge? Our full-length CNS practice tests are just like the free sample test but much longer and different every time, with contents randomly generated from our pool of real CNS exam questions. It's a great way to get ahead of the game and familiarize yourself with the exam because our question format mimics the real thing. When you know what to expect on the exam, it helps to reduce stress and save valuable testing time.

Our informative CNS resources are another way our course can help you become more familiar with the exam before the big day. You'll have access to our library of articles that cover the most common questions test-takers may have, such as how to register for the CNS exam, how much it costs, how the exam is scored and more.

Our goal is to help you achieve your goals, so if you aren't completely satisfied there's a money-back guarantee. When you're ready to try a more effective and flexible way to study, get started any time with your free 15-question sample practice test!
