Meredith Dietetic Interns Have 100% Pass Rate on RD Exam
The 2012 class of students completing Meredith’s Dietetic Internship program have a 100% pass rate on the Registered Dietician (RD) exam.
Meredith College’s pass rate over the past five years is 97%. In 2011 and 2012, all Meredith Dietetic Internship candidates passed the exam on their first try. Only 60% of Dietetic Internship Programs have a pass rate higher than 80%.
Meredith College's Accreditation Council for Education and Nutrition (ACEND)-accredited Dietetic Internship program provides college graduates with the knowledge and supervised practice needed to enter this fast-growing field of nutrition. The Dietetic Internship Program prepares men and women for the RD exam and, ultimately, a career as a Registered Dietitian in the field of nutrition.
Meredith’s Dietetic Interns are in supervised practice settings such as hospitals, wellness centers, WIC programs, Food Service Management and Long Term Care settings. Interns work at least 1,200 hours or 40 hours a week in addition to preparing for the RD Exam.
