The Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) has released the draft Standards for the Advanced Nutrition and Dietetics Practice Standards for Doctoral Education Programs (DrDN) for public comment.  
The Doctoral Standards can be found at ACEND encourages that you open this web address in your browser to facilitate viewing the Standards as you complete this survey.
ACEND anticipates that providing detailed feedback on each of the standards and competencies could take 45 minutes or more. You do not need to answer every question; you are given the option of answering only the sections and questions you choose.  You can provide input on individual standards, specific competencies or you can provide general comments only, if you prefer.  

You do not need to provide all of your input at one time. The survey is designed to save your responses and allows you to return to the survey as many times as you need as long as you reenter the survey from the same computer each time. Thank you for your input. If you have questions please email
