Continuing Education from Western Schools

Welcome Registered Dietitian Nutritionists!
A message from the Dietetics Planner for Western Schools:

Western Schools has provided quality continuing education in the healthcare arena since 1978. As we began planning our educational offerings for nutrition professionals, one theme emerged from the many conversations we had with you and other registered dietitians just like you: more precise nutritional education is needed to help deal with specific diseases and medical conditions. We’ve asked you which diseases challenge you the most and we’re delivering information to help you help your patients. We also are working hard to bring general wellness to the forefront of your practice. Overall, Western Schools is committed to providing the most current research in nutrition sciences to supply RDNs with continuing education you can trust that is steeped in evidence-based practice.

We could not offer accredited nutrition education without you, the nutrition professionals, who have guided the course selection through targeted market research. Thank you for joining our advisory calls, taking time out of your busy days to let us interview you, and caring enough about your profession to respond to our survey of nutrition professionals. All of your feedback has helped us select the most in-demand nutrition topics. We are excited about the survey results and are working to provide the topics of education you have selected.

Not only will we provide courses presented by you, the nutrition experts, but we also plan to take a multidisciplinary approach to include CE selections adapted from other disciplines, because health care truly requires a team approach. We have drawn from the Western Schools peer-reviewed courses to provide education that will enhance the inter-professional practice.

Nutrition science is evolving every day! We aim to keep our CE selections current, interesting, and exciting for you. If you have any feedback, suggestions, or would like to be involved with course development, please contact us at

Thank you for allowing Western Schools to be a part of your career development. It’s never been a better time to be an RDN!
